  • On August 27 at between 10 до 12 p.m. Russia-backed terrorists shelled the village of Opytne near Donetsk using 120 and 82 mm mortars and MLRS “Grad” not even trying to hide the presence of MLRS near the contact line. At around 9:30 p.m. they shelled residential areas of Avdiyivka with 122 mm canons (there are no Ukrainian forces there).

Provision #2 of PoM – Pull-out of all heavy weapons

Not implemented neither by the Russian side nor by its proxies!

Russia does not abide by withdrawal of all foreign armed formations, military equipment, as well as mercenaries from the territory of Ukraine

Russia-backed terrorists continue to shell Ukrainian forces and important infrastructure from the heavy weapons

  • On August 26 the OSCE SMM observed that the weapons were outside the storage and attached to trucks at one heavy weapons holding area of the terrorists. (http://www.osce.org/ukraine-smm/178951).
  • On August 26 the OSCE SMM observed In "LPR"-controlled Kruhlyk (31km south-west of Luhansk),\ 20 main battle tanks (T64). (http://www.osce.org/ukraine-smm/178951)
  • On August 25 OSCE SMM observed a T-72 main battle tank near “DPR”-controlled Horlivka (39km north-east of Donetsk), in violation of respective withdrawal lines. (http://www.osce.org/ukraine-smm/178806)
  • On August 24 in government-controlled Svitlychne, the south-eastern part of government-controlled Nizhniy (56km north-west of Luhansk), the OSCE SMM observed two fresh impacts and carried out crater analysis, concluding that they had been caused by fire from a southerly direction. The type of weapon used was assessed to be 122mm Grad multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) rockets. The SMM also noted that a gas pipeline was heavily damaged and electric cables were cut. (http://www.osce.org/ukraine-smm/178591)
  • On August 24 the OSCE SMM found that in one “DPR” heavy weapons holding area two previously recorded howitzers (152mm 2A65 “Msta-B”) were missing. (http://www.osce.org/ukraine-smm/178591)

Provision #3 of PoM – Effective monitoring and verification by OSCE

Not implemented neither by the Russian side nor by its proxies!

Russia and its proxies continuously prevent the SMM from conducting its activities effectively and do not grant access to the OSCE SMM to the large part of the territory controlled by them including state border between Russia and Ukraine.

  • Self-imposed restrictions on movement into high-risk areas have impinged on OSCE SMM patrolling activities, particularly in areas not controlled by the government of Ukraine. Most areas along the Ukraine-Russian Federation international border, particularly those controlled by the “LPR”, have ordinarily been placed off limits to the SMM. (http://www.osce.org/ukraine-smm/178591 and almost all the OSCE SMM reports)
  • On August 24 an entrance to “LPR”-controlled Kalynove (58km west of Luhansk) the “LPR” “commander” denied the SMM access to the area unless the SMM would go to in his vehicle. (http://www.osce.org/ukraine-smm/178591)
  • On August 26 at a “DPR” checkpoint on H15 located at 8km south of Donetsk city centre, the OSCE SMM was delayed twice, for 12 and 11 minutes respectively.  On one occasion, the “officer” of the “ministry of interior” told the SMM that he had to wait for an approval by the “ministry of defense” to let the SMM proceed. Additionally, on another occasion, at the same checkpoint, the SMM was not allowed to proceed.  The SMM moved 1km back from the checkpoint and following some phone calls was allowed to proceed the second time.

Provisions #4 and 12 – Local elections in accordance with Ukrainian legislation and relevant OSCE standards and monitored by OSCE/ODIHR

Not implemented neither by the Russian side nor by its proxies!

Russia and its proxies keep playing games ignoring a commitment on holding local elections in certain areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions in accordance with Ukrainian legislation and relevant OSCE standards

  • Russia-backed terrorists from the so-called “DPR” announced an intention to hold once again fake elections on October 18, 2015.
  • Russia-backed terrorists from the so-called “LPR” announced an intention to hold once again fake elections on November 1, 2015.

 

Provision #6 – Ensure release and exchange of all hostages and unlawfully detained persons

Not implemented neither by the Russian side nor by its proxies!

Despite achieved agreements, Russia keeps ignoring a commitment on release of all unlawfully detained persons

  • Russia refuses to release a number of Ukrainian political prisoners, including Savchenko, Sentsov and others, illegally detained in Russia. Recently, Russian authorities sentenced Ukrainian citizens Oleg Sentsov and Oleksandr Kolchenko, who had been illegally arrested by Russian occupants in May 2014 and accused of terrorist activities, to 20 and 10 years in prison, respectively. The court, while fulfilling the Kremlin’s political order, fully neglected the law and, in particular, ignored evidence of innocence of the Ukrainian citizens, provided by their lawyers. Almost 115,000 “witnesses” were questioned and provided their evidence within the framework of the “investigation” (more than 60,000 in Savchenko’s case alone), which prove that neither Savchenko nor Sentsov nor any other Ukrainian citizen detained and tried in Russia did commit a crime.

Provision #7 – Ensure safe access, delivery, storage, and distribution of humanitarian assistance to those in need, on the basis of an international mechanism

Not implemented neither by the Russian side nor by its proxies!

Despite achieved agreements, Russia keeps ignoring a commitment on engaging an international mechanism for delivery and distribution of humanitarian aid

  • In August 2014-August 2015, Russia has sent 37 so-called “humanitarian aid convoys” (since February 12, 2015 – 23 convoys) without consent of and inspection by the Ukrainian authorities and without coordination with ICRC. Arrival of almost every convoy coincided with further escalation.
  • Russia-backed terrorists continue blocking delivery of Ukrainian and international humanitarian aid and occasionally obstructing the evacuation of the civilian population. The militants unlawfully demand from international humanitarian organizations to be “accredited”.

Provision #10 of PoM – Pullout of all foreign armed formations, military equipment and mercenaries from Ukraine’s territory under OSCE supervision

Not implemented neither by the Russian side nor by its proxies!

Russia and Russia-backed terrorists master plans to gain territory and vital socio-economic infrastructure

  • On August 24-27, 2015, Ukraine’s ATO Forces along with the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine (SBGS) have observed 11 UAVs used by Russia’s Armed Forces and Russia-backed terrorists to conduct reconnaissance of Ukraine’s positions as well as Ukraine’s state border with Russia[1].
  • According to the ATO Staff Russia continues to hold close to the border and on the occupied territory of Ukraine 45 battalion tactic groups and 17 company tactic groups totaling more than 54,000 military personnel with appropriate weapons and equipment. Russia has instigated an over 44,000-strong force in Donbas, with about 60% of them being Russian armed forces. This force is commanded and coordinated by the Russian generals and military officers.
