The militants endangered representatives of the OSCE SMM trying to discredit the Ukrainian military.

Censor.NET reports citing the ATO press center.

A militant-controlled website citied terrorist leader Eduard Basurin who allegedly got under attack of Ukrainian military together with representatives of the OSCE and Russian side of the Joint Center for control and coordination near Kominternove village.

'Accidentally', they were accompanied by Russian journalists, namely VGTRK film crew.

Yesterday, the Ukrainian side warned that the militants were preparing provocations against OSCE SMM representatives.

"According to available information, the pro-Russian terrorists tried to send an OSCE SMM patrol into an ambush, where the bandits disguised as Ukrainian soldiers planned to fire and kill the mission's representatives, accusing the Ukrainian military of violation of the Minsk Agreements and inability of the Ukrainian side to ensure proper conditions for implementation of the OSCE mission," the headquarters recalls its previous message.

"All the reports of the militants are fake. They are trying to distort the real situation at the demarcation line. As of 3 p.m. today, the Ukrainian side did not carry out a single shot in the ATO area, despite 14 provocative attacks at Ukrainian positions with small arms and grenade launchers.

"As Eduard Basurin has declared recently, he was surprised by the desire of the OSCE SMM to come to Kominternove immediately after Ukrainian media disclosed the information that the militants were settling positions with heavy machinery there. Therefore, this provocation is nothing more than an attempt to "discourage" the representatives of the OSCE to come to Kominternove in the future," the headquarters summed up.
