VIENNA, December 10. /TASS/. The average flow of people crossing the Russian-Ukrainian border through the Donetsk and Gukovo border crossing points has decreased to 6,271 per day over the past week, the OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) Special Monitoring Mission said in a weekly report on Wednesday.

“During the reporting period, the OTs observed 488 men and women in military-style dress crossing the border in both directions, predominantly towards the RF (Russian Federation). These people have been crossing individually or in groups,” the report said.

“The OTs also noted that recently more and more females in military-style clothing are crossing the border,” it said.

“The OTs continued to observe an increased number of cars with “DPR/LPR” (Donetsk People's Republic and Luhansk People's Republic) stickers, replacing the Ukrainian flag on their licence plates. In addition, OTs observed ‘DPR/ LPR’ flags being displayed on car dashboards,” the report said.

“At the two BCPs the OM did not observe any military movement, apart from vehicles of the RF border guard service,” it said.
