He said in an interview with Ukrainska Pravda, Censor.NET reports.
According to Hug, it is actually possible to learn about certain cases in the OSCE SMM reports when the observers recorded people wearing Russian insignia.
He also confirmed that the observers, including him, met with the people who claimed their membership in the military units of the Russian Federation. The principal deputy chief monitor stressed that the mentioned people themselves claimed that they were members of the Russian army units.
Hug said that the OSCE participating states must draw their own conclusions as the SMM is not authorized to determine the parties to the conflict.
