The situation in the frontal zone in the Donbass is heating up, the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) records an increase in the number of shelling.


OSCE: Donbass phase of escalation begins


After an agreement on truce for the holidays, relative peace was established. But there was not a single day without violations. The parties do not fully fulfill their obligations. Now we can say that the phase of escalation has begun. This is evidenced by 2 thousand violations, which our observers recorded from 17.00 on Tuesday to 17.00 Wednesday this week
- said the first deputy head of the OSCE SMM Alexander Hug at a briefing on Friday in Kiev.

He recalled that similar agreements had already been: the so-called Easter, school, bread truce, and they all passed under the same scheme: a sharp cease-fire, then a gradual increase in the number of attacks.

All these truces had positive consequences. Local residents had the opportunity to rest from the shelling. But these periods did not last long.
- noted Hug.

The first deputy head of the mission also informed that during 2017 a year, observers recorded 401 thousand. 336 of ceasefire violations in the Donbas. For comparison: in 2016, there were 320 thousand 130 cases.

We, the OSCE SMM, cannot ensure the establishment of peace, only the parties to the conflict can do this, only they can stop the hostilities and ensure sustainable peace by withdrawing weapons and demining
- stressed Hug

    One would think that no one had foreseen this ... Another thing is that no one wants to do anything to bring the situation back to normal, including this mission.

      including this mission.

      and what can they do? they are observers. their business is to look where and what. another thing is how to look. everything is in the hands of guarantors of signatories. but they are silent like a fish on ice

    He would go to Kiev, and demanded to withdraw his armed bandits to the agreed positions. And if you can’t do anything, then let him go home from his Donbass with his mission.

        It seems to me that the hypocrisy for European officials is quite normal, only after they resign they begin to scribble memoirs and echoes of conscience wake up from them.

          That is yes. The only thing I doubt is that their conscience wakes up in their old age. It seems to me that this is simply an aging-related reduction in self-control of speech! laughing

            And such an option is possible. Then another option came to my mind with the fact that this is an attempt to earn some money for sensation, for old age.

    Shelling more and more. But it’s a pity that for four years the brave fascists from the OSCE did not manage to establish where they were shooting from. Well, of course, only Russia is to blame for this.

    the donkey understands that the staff will organize a meat grinder for the elections.
    If nothing is done, we will look at the box on the destruction of the republics. And during the elections it’s impossible to answer like that

    The OSCE only fixes the fact of escalation, but does not seem to determine the responsible, for the side that Berlin (and Brussels) consider illegal is always guilty. At the same time, the OSCE is also financed from the budget of the Russian Federation. Interesting movie.

    What to do with Ukraine.
    It is possible that the proposals are somewhat adventurous or amateurish in nature, but this is how I express my opinion.
    In addition, the sanctions that have been introduced and are being prepared cannot be an excuse for curtailing aid and relations with the republics.
    And we will interact with them, or stop, will not contribute to the lifting of these sanctions. We are still “bad and deserve punishment.”
    It is necessary to consider actions in several areas.
    - Social sphere.
    Expansion of relations in the social sphere - education, cultural exchanges, sports, etc.
    Removing all kinds of barriers for residents of Donetsk and Lugansk regions, including those occupied by Ukraine, upon obtaining residence permits, obtaining education, employment in the territory of the Russian Federation (without prejudice to the interests of local residents).
    The economic sphere.
    Removing all kinds of financial barriers (customs, excise and other taxes) in the supply of goods and products to (from) DLNR.
    Assistance to the republics in the development of economic relations with South Ossetia and Abkhazia which the republics recognized. Through these ties, to promote the revival of industrial production, primarily those that can produce or cooperate with Russian enterprises in the manufacture of samples of equipment and products needed for the Russian Federation and the republics themselves.
    Close cooperation in scientific and technical fields. For example, mining safety (McNII mining safety).
    Establish direct railway communication with the Russian Federation, including passenger. At first - suburban. Earlier, for example, the Ilovaysk-Taganrog train went.
    To assist in the modernization of railway infrastructure, rolling stock, and to establish the production of components in this area not only for the republics, but also for the Russian Federation.
    Politico-military sphere.
    If the situation worsens, make a statement on the unacceptability of the location of Ukrainian heavy weapons outside storage facilities.
    Sanctions will still apply. Therefore, it is necessary to indicate that Russia, as one of the guarantors of the Minsk Agreements, due to the passivity of the remaining participants of the Norman Four, is unilaterally forced to warn of a corresponding reaction to ignoring or not fulfilling the terms of the agreements. Up to coercive measures.
    In case of disagreement of the Ukrainian side - to establish a no-fly zone over all territories of Donetsk and Lugansk regions. And make the APU relocate heavy equipment to designated places. In case of disobedience - selectively destroy, after warning.
    After the withdrawal of technology - remove the no-fly zone mode.
    At the same time, invite AFU officers to participate in the work of the ICCC on the territory of the DLNR.
    To unilaterally introduce, as an experiment, with the consent of the DLNR, a peacekeeping contingent under the conditions of protection of the OSCE mission patrols.
    We have nothing to lose. Sanctions will be strengthened, it is better to immediately show our resolve than then try to negotiate with the non-negotiable.
