The SMM continued to monitor the disengagement process and to pursue full access to the disengagement areas of Stanytsia Luhanska, Zolote, and Petrivske, as foreseen in the Framework Decision of the Trilateral Contact Group relating to disengagement of forces and hardware of Sept.21 2016.
"The SMM observed fresh tracks assessed as those of tanks in the security zone. On 17 May the SMM saw six sets of fresh tracks, assessed as those of tanks (T-72 and T-64) near "DPR"-controlled Makiivka. The SMM followed the tracks east to "DPR"-controlled Khartsyzk, where the tracks of two tanks (T-64) continued east on highway H21 and the tracks of the other one (T-72) continued to south-east, and then west, near "DPR"-controlled Ilovaisk. On 18 May the SMM saw fresh tracks of a tank (T-64) near "DPR"-controlled Debaltseve," the report reads.
The SMM recorded fewer cease-fire violations in both Donetsk and Luhansk regions compared with the previous reporting period.
At the same time, in violation of the respective withdrawal lines an SMM mini unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) spotted on 16 May in non-government-controlled areas 13 BM-21 Grad rocket systems near Khrustalnyi in the Donetsk region.
