 "DPR" militants target OSCE monitors, seize UAV

Terrorists have seized an OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) drone near Yasynuvata.

Censor.NET reports citing the OSCE press service.

The incident occurred at around 2:30 p.m. on Feb. 24 in "DPR"-controlled Yasynuvata.

An SMM patrol was attempting to launch a UAV, intending to monitor the alleged shelling of the Donetsk water filtration station, when armed men pointed their weapons at them, advanced towards them and seized the UAV, after which one of the men opened fire which impacted close to the SMM patrol.

"Firing at unarmed civilian monitors is not only a direct threat to the lives of brave men and women doing their best to bring peace to Ukraine, it is a direct challenge to the collective will of the 57 OSCE participating States, and to the Minsk agreements," Chief Monitor of the OSCE SMM Ertugrul Apakan said.

Apakan insisted that those responsible be held accountable and that there should be no impunity for these acts.
