VIENNA, August 19. /TASS/. The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) monitors register an increase in armed clashes near Donetsk, Gorlovka and to the northeast of Marioupol, the head of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine, Ertugrul Apakan said.
The monitors see many cases of the use of multiple rocket launchers near the contact line in Donbass, Apakan told reporters in Vienna, Austria, on Wednesday. The OSCE monitors have become more and more threatened of late, and this forces the mission to adapt the work to these security conditions, he added.
The mission is ready to monitor the situation throughout the day, except for the nights, when the risk is increased, Apakan said.
Kiev and militias have failed so far to agree on details of withdrawing weaponry under 100mm caliber and mortars with the caliber under 120mm, he said.
