 Observers not allowed by terrorists to see "withdrawn" equipment, OSCE says

OSCE's Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) cannot verify weapons withdrawal by terrorists of the "Donetsk People's Republic" and "Luhansk People's Republic" due to observers not being allowed to storage areas.

This was announced by Deputy Chief Monitor of the OSCE SMM in Ukraine Alexander Hug at a briefing, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrainski Novyny.

Hug said it was a pity that the Mission was not allowed to see storage of withdrawn weapons in the area not controlled by the government. Interfering with the verification process is also a violation of the additional protocol, he noted.
