VIENNA, October 7. /TASS/. Observers from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) who are monitoring the situation in Ukraine have found discrepancies between the real state of things and reports provided by the Ukrainian military, according to a daily update of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) to Ukraine for October 6 that was made public on Tuesday.
"Ukrainian checkpoint commanders at various locations to the north and north-east of Mariupol told the SMM of shelling directed at the checkpoints the previous evening. The SMM - whilst at the checkpoints - neither observed nor heard shelling, nor saw any indication that shelling may have recently taken place,” the report says.
Further on, according to the report, “in Debaltsevo, the SMM was informed by a senior Ukrainian military officer that there had in the previous 24 hours been 76 “ceasefire” violations - 42 by the separatists and 34 by the Ukrainian Army - in the Debaltsevo area, resulting in one fatality and 13 injuries. The SMM observed no incidents in the area, and saw nothing that would substantiate the allegations made by the officer.”
