ROSTOV-ON-DON, October 24. /TASS/. International observers monitoring Russia's southern Rostov region border with Ukraine say no military hardware, aircraft or drones have passed over crossing points being checked at Gukovo and Donetsk.
Mission head for the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Paul Picard told reporters on Friday that since the start of observations, monitors had seen military equipment and aircraft, helicopters and drones flying along the border line, but not violating it.
At least 560,000 Ukrainians had crossed the two border points in the past three months, Picard said. They had been reporting better conditions in Ukraine as electricity and water supplies were resuming in smaller towns. Transport had started operating again with bus routes linking the city of Luhansk to large Russian cities.
