The Special Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office in Ukraine and in the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG) Martin Sajdik said yesterday, Censor.NET reports citing OSCE.
"With great concern I follow the recent increase in civilian victims of the conflict in eastern Ukraine. Reports by the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine have confirmed at least six civilian deaths, on both sides of the line of contact, in the past two weeks. At least three of those victims have been killed by shelling, another most probably by a mine. A number of civilians have been injured, among them a three-year old boy," the official said.
Martin Sajdik called on all sides to do their utmost to stop this worrying trend - through full respect of the cease-fire, progress on disengagement and demining and by implementing their commitments to withdraw weapons from the contact line.
