Ukrainian armed formations continue to actively interfere with the work of OSCE SMM observers in order to conceal the deployment of prohibited weapons, Deputy Commander of the Operational Command Colonel Eduard Basurin reported at the briefing in Donetsk on February 21.

“Commander of the occupation forces Kravchenko instructed the commanders of the 502nd and 305th EW battalions to enhance activities for countering OSCE unmanned aerial vehicles, which monitor the situation at the contact line.

Last week, our intelligence detected the operation of enemy EW stations R-934B and Bukovel-AD that were concealing the movement and deployment of prohibited heavy Ukrainian weapons in the vicinity of Konstantinovka, Krasnoye, Artemovsk, Pischevik, Novosyolovka, Dyleyevka, Novgorodskoye, Petrovskoye and Pavlopol,” Basurin noted.
