The number of instances of the use of heavy weapons in Donbas went up 230% over a period of one week, OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) Principal Deputy Chief Monitor Alexander Hug said.

The security situation deteriorated last week and the number of situations involving the use of heavy weapons, specifically, tanks, mortars, and artillery, including multiple rocket launchers, went up 230%, Hug said at a news briefing in Kyiv on Friday.

The 400 instances of the use of multiple rocket launchers cause the SMM's special concerns, Hug said.
