VIENNA, April 17. /TASS/. The Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) has registered large amounts of weapons belonging to Ukrainian Armed Forces in the security area in eastern Ukraine, the OSCE SMM said in its report on Friday.
The SMM observed "in government-controlled areas, six Ukrainian Armed Forces artillery pieces towed by armoured personnel carriers and 21 Ukrainian Armed Forces tanks (T-64) in total, at different locations" and "in DPR-controlled areas, four military-type trucks towing four 152mm howitzers and two main battle tanks (T-72)."
Besides, the SMM’s drone provided images of four self-propelled howitzers in the area adjacent to the village of Shevchenko (100 kilometres south-west of Donetsk) controlled by militias of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR).
At the same time, the SMM’s "unmanned aerial vehicle" registered an armoured personnel carrier and four military trucks towing artillery in the area of the government-controlled village of Volodarskoye (96 kilometres south-west of Donetsk).
