 OSCE insists on meeting with militants’ leader Zakharchenko over threats to observers

The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) insists on a meeting with leader of the “DPR” militants Alexander Zakharchenko to discuss threats made by the terrorists against the observers.

As reported by Censor.NET citing BBC, this was stated in a spot report by the OSCE SMM.

According to the monitors, the armed "DPR" members pointed guns at SMM in a very aggressive manner near "DPR"-controlled Lukove village (72 km south of Donetsk) July 29. One "DPR" member made a "cut throat" sign to the SMM and took photographs of both SMM vehicles and the drivers.

However, according to the OSCE SMM, the "DPR" terrorists' leader continues evading the meeting.
