Army reporter: OSCE observers unable to approach militant positions

Translated by: Peter Dutczyn

Observers from the OSCE are monitoring the positions of the Ukrainian forces only and register firing only by one side, military journalist Andriy Tsapliyenko has said at an online news conference at the news service of the Ukrainian One Plus One TV channel, Donetsk-based news website OstroV reported on 1 October at 9:41 Kyiv time.

“They are simply not allowed to monitor the positions of militants. Whenevera car with OSCE monitors approaches the militant positions, they fire warning shots. Naturally the observers turn around and flee,” the journalist said.

Tsapliyenko stressed that Ukraine respected all its obligations under the agreement regulating Ukrainian cease-fire implementation signed in Minsk in the early hours of 20 September and was not trying to frighten the OSCE observers, and that is why it turned out that the observers were monitoring only one side.

“It is said there is no military hardware in the ‘Donetsk people’s republic’ because they cannot enter their territory and take a look at this hardware. Meanwhile, they see Ukrainian military hardware and force Ukrainian servicemen not even to return fire,” Tsapliyenko said.
