DONETSK, October 27. /TASS/. Militias of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) have shot down a Ukrainian unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCVA) when it was targeting a DPR military facility, Spokesman for the DPR People's Militia Daniil Bezsonov said on Saturday.
"The Ukrainian side keeps breaching the Minsk accords concerning the use of UCVAs. In the past 24 hours, as the adversary was attempting to deliver a strike on a guarded military facility of the DPR People’s Militia, the air defense force destroyed another unmanned combat aerial vehicle of the Ukrainian Armed Forces," he was cited by the Donetsk news agency as saying.
The agreements adopted at Minsk meetings of the Contact Group seeking peace for eastern Ukraine allow only the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) to use UAVs in areas adjacent to the disengagement line in Donbass.
