By Cyber Era Reporter
A Daily Report 79/2020 on April 3 by the Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe(OSCE)showed that compared with the previous reporting period, the SMM recorded fewer ceasefire violations in Donetsk region and more in Luhansk region.
According to the report, members of the armed formations continued to deny the SMM passage towards non-government-controlled areas of Donetsk region at checkpoints near Verkhnoshyrokivske, Olenivka and Horlivka and to government-controlled areas of Luhansk region at a checkpoint south of the Stanytsia Luhanska bridge, even as the Mission continued monitoring the disengagement areas near Stanytsia Luhanska, Zolote and Petrivske.
The SMM saw four weapons in violation of withdrawal lines in government-controlled areas of both Donetsk and Luhansk regions and monitored adherence to localized ceasefires to enable construction of power lines near government-controlled Maiorsk as well as demining activities in cemeteries in government-controlled areas of Luhansk region.
The SMM again saw that entry-exit checkpoints of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in both Donetsk and Luhansk regions and corresponding checkpoints of the armed formations remained closed for traffic amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
