Around 70 OSCE patrols monitor the situation along the delimitation line in Donbas every day. This was reported in Facebook by Ukraine’s representative in the humanitarian subgroup in the Trilateral Contact Group Iryna Gerashchenko.

The access of the patrols to the delimitation line between Ukraine and Russia remains limited, she added.

“Around 70 patrols of the mission monitor almost 470 km along the demarcation line in Donbas. Unfortunately, it is difficult for the OSCE SMM to enter the uncontrolled part of Ukraine-Russia border and the time they can stay in the frontier area is limited because Donbas occupation forces forbid it,” Gerashchenko said.

Earlier it was reported that OSCE mission recorded increased number of ceasefire regime violations on May 12-13. SMM recorded more ceasefire violations in Donetsk region.
