Militant shooting continues in eastern Ukraine despite ceasefire
OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) in Ukraine has reported the presence of seven T-72 tanks in the militant-occupied city of Luhansk, which is a violation of Minsk agreement, according to its statement published on Saturday.
"In violation of the respective withdrawal lines, the SMM observed seven tanks (T-72) in 'LPR'-controlled Luhansk city," the statement reads. "Beyond the respective withdrawal lines but outside storage sites, the SMM observed five mortars of undetermined type and calibre at the 'LPR'-controlled Myrne training area (28km south-west of Luhansk) and 27 tanks (T-64) at the training area in 'LPR'-controlled Kruhlyk (32km south-west of Luhansk)."
The report also noted the SMM revisited a Ukrainian Armed Forces permanent storage site, whose location corresponded with the withdrawal lines, and observed that all weapons previously recorded in this site were present.
