OSCE records 225 violations during ceasefire in Donbas

The parties had to observe a complete ceasefire from July 27

Observers of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) in Donbas recorded 225 violations of the ceasefire after it entered into force on 27 July. This is stated in the daily report of the mission.

“From 00:01 July 27 to the end of the reporting period, the mission recorded 225 ceasefire violations,” the report says.

It also notes that the SMM recorded nine ceasefire violations in Donetsk region (compared to 1 in the previous reporting period) and 93 ceasefire violations in Luhansk region (where no violations were recorded in the previous reporting period).

The SMM also observed weapons deployed in violation of withdrawal lines on the contact line.

The mission added that the freedom of movement of SMM patrols was restricted at the checkpoint near Yelenovka (not controlled by the Ukrainian government, 23 km south-west of Donetsk).

On July 22, a regular meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group was held in the format of a videoconference, which resulted in the achievement of agreements on a full and comprehensive ceasefire on the contact line from 00:01 on July 27.

  • Deathly silence from Europe over this blatant breach of the ceasefire by Russia. Of course nothing will come of it, except the usual “both sides” BS from the jellyfish.

    • Those of us here were not persuaded, we’ve seen this movie 30 times. We know that the Putin version of a ceasefire means YOU stop shooting and we continue because we are Russian and don’t have to follow laws, rules or agreements.

    Okay, so we have a broken cease-fire. How many does that make? Has anyone heard what the television clown has to say about this? He has, after all, pulled the teeth from the Ukrainian military to help fulfill his pipe-dream. EVERYONE on here and on UA Wire and elsewhere too knew that the mafia rodent will not keep to this agreement, so why does the PRESIDENT not know this? Is he really so moronic? Or, is there another reason behind this colossal farce?
