Most violations occurred in areas south-east of the government-controlled town of Popasna 69 km west of the Russian proxies’ stronghold of Luhansk, as well as Pervomaisk and Kalynove-Borshchuvate (both non-government-controlled, also west of Luhansk).

As reported earlier, the security situation continued to deteriorate over the recent months, while the territory around the disengagement area near Zolote is “turning into a hotspot,” as per OSCE Chaiperson-in-Office’s Special Representative in Ukraine and in the Trilateral Contact Group, Heidi Grau.
