"On the afternoon of December 8, the same camera recorded 12 explosions of uncertain origin and 37 shells from east to west – all in 0.5-1.5 km to the south," the report says.

The Ukrainian members of the Center stressed that the facts recorded and published on the official website of the OSCE once again refute the fake reports created by Russian propaganda.
