 Militants left Shyrokyne - OSCE

The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) to Ukraine confirms that the pro-Russian militants left Shyrokyne village in the Donetsk region.

Censor.NET reports citing 112 Ukraina.

"In Shyrokyne (20km east of Mariupol), the SMM observed that a 'DPR' bunker complex at the northern entrance of the village was vacant and that a nearby building previously used as a 'DPR"' strongpoint was on fire. In the village, the SMM observed that all positions and bunkers previously occupied by 'DPR' members, including command posts and billets were also vacant. The SMM observed significant amounts of small-arms ammunition, grenades, rocket-propelled grenade warheads and other military equipment throughout the village," the SMM report reads.

Earlier, on July 1, the terrorists have declared that, as 'an act of good will', they announce Shyrokyne a demilitarized zone. The Ukrainian Defense Ministry confirmed that the militants left the village, but the threat of mortar and artillery fire still exists.
