“SMM registers a couple of hundreds of shellings every day. Particularly, on May 2, fire from ‘Grads’ was heard in Donetsk. It caused casualties among civilians. OSCE notes that it was the first time they heard ‘Grads’ fire since the adoption of the latest Minsk agreements in the middle of February,” he said.

“In fact, the mission observes heavy weaponry in the confrontation region every day,” added Alexander Hug.

Recently United States Mission to the OSCE reported that Russia continues to provide lethal weapons, training, and command and control support to the separatists in Eastern Ukraine.
