"Having failed to receive wages, militants of the 2nd army corps resorted to an alternative method of enrichment - they started to sell hardware spare parts that can be used in civilian equipment or vehicles. Militants continue to desert. The majority of deserters are repeat offenders," the report reads.

"The OSCE SMM and the DI continue monitoring the implementation of the Minsk agreements.
