VIENNA, February 4 /TASS/. The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission /SMM/ to Ukraine has revealed new facts that the Ukraine army is using cluster munitions to shell the populated localities in Donbas, the SMM wrote in its daily report for February 3.
The DPR-controlled town of Komsomolskoye was affected by heavy shelling by MLRS on February 2, according to the local residents.
"The SMM examined nine impacts caused by what appeared to be 220mm rockets which appear to have been launched from a Uragan MLRS. The analysis suggested that the shelling came from a south-western direction," the February 3 report said.
"Among the remnants from the rockets, the SMM saw delivery casing which it assessed as evidence that anti-personnel cluster munitions had been used," the OSCE mission said.
According to the local residents, one person was killed and two civilians were wounded in the shelling.
The OSCE observers at the Donetsk and Gukovo border crossing points /BCP/ have not fixed any military movements on the Russia-Ukraine border.
"At the two BCPs the OM did not observe military movement, apart from vehicles of the Russian Federation Border Guard Service," the OSCE Observer Mission said in its report for January 28-February 4.
"The average number of entries/exits slightly increased from 6,565 to 6,632 per day for both BCPs during the reporting period," the OSCE report said.
"More people entered the Russian Federation than Ukraine. The average net flow (i.e. the balance of entries and exits) was plus 680 per day for both BCPs," the OSCE went on to say.
"People crossing the border in particular at BCP Donetsk continued to approach the OTs to share their stories, experiences and observations from the Ukrainian side of the border. People continued to tell the OTs that they no longer felt safe in their homes and were crossing the border into the Russian Federation to escape war, and protect their children, families," the OSCE observers wrote.
