Ukrainian armed formations continue to actively impede the work of OSCE SMM observers with a view to conceal the deployment of prohibited weapons, Vice-Commander of the Operational Command Colonel Eduard Basurin reported at the briefing in Donetsk on February 14.

“Occupation forces commander Kravchenko ordered the commanders of the 502nd and 305th EW battalions to enhance measures to counter OSCE unmanned aerial vehicles, by means of which observers monitor the situation near the contact line.

Last week, our reconnaissance detected the use of R-934B and Bukovel-AD radio-electronic suppression stations by the enemy to conceal the movement and deployment of prohibited Ukrainian heavy weapons in the areas of Bogdanovka, Stepanovka, Konstantinovka and Pleshcheyevka,” Basurin said.
