VIENNA, November 27. /TASS/. OSCE observers came under fire in eastern Ukraine, according to a reported placed on the OSCE website.
No casualties have been reported during the incident, the Special Monitoring Mission said.
“At approximately 12:00hrs on 26 November, an SMM patrol of three monitors - escorted by Ukrainian military personnel - was travelling between two Ukrainian military checkpoints (CP) - less than 2km apart - between the towns of Kirove (55km North-East of Donetsk) and Shumy (50km North-East of Donetsk),” the report said.
“When they reached the CP near Shumy at 12.10hrs, one of the SMM monitors exited the SMM armoured vehicle.”
“Almost immediately, a rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) was fired - from a location to the South-East - impacting approximately 150 metres from the SMM vehicle. In the space of two seconds, multiple rounds of 23mm anti-aircraft ammunition were fired, impacting two to three metres from the SMM vehicle,” the report said.
“The SMM monitor - who had been standing next to the SMM vehicle - immediately entered it, at which point, it left the scene.” There were no injuries or damage sustained in the attack. The SMM monitors returned safely to their base,” it said.
