 Donbas conflict far from being frozen, - Hug

OSCE says the situation in the Donbas is unpredictable, very volatile and very kinetic.

This was stated by deputy chief monitor of the OSCE SMM in Ukraine Alexander Hug in an interview to DW, Censor.NET reports.

Answering a question on whether the conflict in the Donbas is turning frozen, Hug said:

"The conflict in the east is far from frozen, it's the opposite. Weapons are moving, troops are moving and there are ceasefire violations. We can only see a fraction of what is happening, we see the tip of a large, dangerous iceberg," deputy chief monitor said.

The situation in the Donbas is static but unpredictable, very volatile and very kinetic, Hug says.

"These are not the characteristics of what a frozen conflict would be like," the monitor summed up.
