Ukraine at OSCE: Four Ukrainian soldiers killed, 36 wounded since start of September.

Since the beginning of September, the Russian-occupation forces have carried out 85 armed provocations in eastern Ukraine, killing four Ukrainian soldiers and wounding 36 more.

“Since the beginning of September this year alone, four Ukrainian defenders have been killed and 36 more have been wounded amid more than 85 armed provocations by the Russian-occupation forces,” the Permanent Mission of Ukraine to the International Organizations in Vienna informed the delegations of the OSCE participating States at a meeting of the Forum for Security Co-operation on Wednesday, September 15, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

In total, since the comprehensive ceasefire was established on July 27, 2020, 58 Ukrainian service members have been killed and more than 220 soldiers have been wounded in the attacks launched by Russian armed formations.

“From July 27 last year to September 12 this year, positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine came under 2,315 attacks. In particular, the enemy used weapons prohibited by the Minsk agreements – tanks, 152mm and 122mm artillery systems, 120mm and 82mm mortars – in more than 585 attacks,” the Ukrainian delegation informed foreign diplomats about Russia’s ceasefire violations in eastern Ukraine.

In addition, the Ukrainian Mission underscored that Russian armed formations were systematically taking measures to mine Ukrainian positions using UAVs and with the help of sabotage groups.

"Russia continues to use POM-2, MON-50, PFM-1, and PMN mines, which are prohibited by international law," the Mission said.

It was also pointed out that the Russian-occupation forces violated other provisions of the Minsk agreements, including on the use of UAVs – more than 145 cases, the construction of new positions and consolidation of existing ones – 29 cases, mine delivery – more than 55 cases, attacks on civilian facilities – more than 40 cases.
