"Today, just a few hours ago, the deputy head of the OSCE [special monitoring] mission, Alexander Hug, was Kominternove. And he was not allowed to enter the house on Zhdanov street. This is despite the fact that he was accompanied by representatives of the Russian side to the JCCC," the official said.

According to Labai, this could indicate that "there may have been banned weapons and military personnel" in that house.

"And I do not rule out that there may have also been the servicemen of the regular armed forces of the Russian Federation," said the press officer.
