During a video briefing from Donetsk region, he said that the OSCE patrol came under fire while monitoring the area between the towns of Avdiyivka and Yasynuvata in the early afternoon on Friday. None of the members of the patrol was injured, he said.

According to Hug, some people believe that the events that occur in Donbas are no longer worthy of attention. In this regard, he stressed that it was necessary to reject this point of view.
