MOSCOW, April 19. /TASS/. The defence ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) said on Sunday it hopes a new observation point Ukraine’s representatives at the Joint Center for Control and Coordination (JCCC) plan to place near the settlement of Peski will help Kiev have better control over its army units.
"We hope this observation point will help the Ukrainian army command have an unbiased view of the situation in this area and expose provocations from the part of Ukrainian units in due time," the Donetsk News Agency quoted a DPR defence ministry spokesman as saying.
He said that numerous provocations from Ukrainian troops proved that Ukrainian units deployed at the frontline were not obeying the Ukrainian military command.
Earlier on Sunday, a spokesman for the headquarters of the Kiev force operation said the Ukrainian side was to place an additional observation point near Peski to ensure "more efficient monitoring of the ceasefire regime.".
