“Due to the ongoing shooting and explosions of shells…, several of the OSCE staffers working at the Gukovo border checkpoint left their work places,” Vasily Malayev said adding that border guards and customs officials remain on duty.
OSCE spokesman Shiv Sharma earlier told ITAR-TASS that the Gukovo checkpoint came twice under fire on Sunday.
Shrama said the incidents had not disrupted the work of the OSCE observers, who did not plan to change their schedule.
On July 24, the OSCE Permanent Council made a decision to send an observer mission to the Russian-Ukrainian border in line with Russia’s late June initiative to deploy international observers at its border with Ukraine.
OSCE observers began arriving in the Rostov Region starting in late July. Two observers are on duty at each of the Gukovo and Donetsk checkpoints round-the-clock. The observer team was expected to be finally formed before August 16.
