Militants are attempting to intimidate observers of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM), a press centre of the Ukrainian envoys in the Joint Center for Control and Coordination (JCCC) regarding ceasefire issues and stabilization on the dividing line between the parties.
"A cruel shell attack of the representatives of international observation mission is nothing else as one more attempt of the militants to intimidate the OSCE SMM observers and to make them refuse from offered by Ukrainian JCCC practice of 'mirror patrolling' in those regions of the anti-terrorist area [ATO], where a situation worsens a lot," JCCC press service quotes its press officer Vasyl Labai as saying.
Labai said on April 9 the mission accompanied by Ukrainian envoys from JCCC came under attack near the village of Zaitseve at nearly 13.00.
