KIEV, October 6. /TASS/. Drones for the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission have just arrived in Ukraine, spokesman Michael Bociurkiw said on Monday.

Drones have been delivered from Austria. Now they are undergoing customs clearance, Bociurkiw said, adding that civilian specialists would work with them.

Drones will be used in several weeks. Now there is no strict schedule for starting their use, he told TASS.

Andrei Lysenko, head of the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Committee, said earlier that the OSCE mission would soon get drones for monitoring purposes.

“This will increase the effectiveness of the mission’s work immensely,” he said.

The OSCE Secretariat earlier said that the drones would be used to monitor the Ukrainian-Russian border and in compliance with the ceasefire agreement reached in Minsk on September 5.
