Observers monitoring mission of the OSCE came under fire when we were in Donetsk filtering station. This was announced by first Deputy Chairman of the Special OSCE monitoring mission in Ukraine Alexander hug.

According to him, the incident occurred on Thursday, August 3, when the contractor tried to install video surveillance on the roof of the filtration plant.

“Yesterday in Donetsk filtering station, located between government-controlled Avdiyivka and controlled so-called DNR Yasinovataya, observers SMM and employees of the Contracting organization came under fire from small arms”, – he said.

According to him, the shelling of civilians was carried out despite the fact that the Joint center for control and coordination of ceasefire and stabilization of the demarcation line previously contributed to obtain security assurances for the establishment of a local ceasefire within a radius of 15 km around the filtration plant.

We will remind, recently the OSCE observers came under fire in the occupied area of Yasinovataya of Donetsk region.
