The Ukrainian side of the JCCC says that the act of provocation by the fighters of the armed forces of the Russian Federation is connected with intentions not to let reveal firing activity and attacks on Ukrainian positions.

"The Ukrainian side of the JCCC says the actions of the Russian occupation forces against legitimate patrolling by the OSCE SMM are unacceptable and irresponsible, and considers them as a gross violation of the Minsk agreements," the statement said.
