VIENNA, January 29. /TASS/. Monitors of the European security organization OSCE who are placed at the Donetsk and Gukovo border crossing stations on the Russian-Ukrainian border did not register any movement of military hardware across the border there over the past seven days, the mission said in a report for the period of January 21 to January 28.
The monitors did not see any military movement at the two checkpoints except for the cars of the Russian border service.
"The situation at both BCPs remained calm," the report said. "The OM continued to observe that the Russian Federation border guard and customs service conducted checks and controls."
"Regular local and long-distance bus connections continued to operate between the Luhansk region and cities in the Russian Federation," the OSCE mission said, adding that the monitors observed more people on the buses arriving from Ukraine then leaving Russian Federation.
"As well as in previous weeks, people crossing the border at both BCPs approached the observers to share their stories, experiences and observations from the Ukrainian side of the border, for example, heavy shelling in Lugansk and Stakhanov, schools hit by airdropped bombs in Stakhanov," the report said adding that the observer mission was not in the position to verify any of these accounts.
