Russian snipers have allegedly arrived in occupied Donetsk to destroy surveillance cameras put in place by the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission which have been installed at strategic locations on the front line, the headquarters of the Joint Forces Operation (JFO) press service reported.

“According to available information, groups of Russian snipers arrived in occupied Donetsk with the task of preparing for and carrying out the elimination of the surveillance cameras that were installed in accordance with the Minsk agreements. This is an additional sign of deceit and of the Russian troops’ disrespect of international agreements,” the report said.

The JFO said the installed SMM online video surveillance cameras allow for 24/7 video recording and monitoring. Using these cameras, the international independent observers have repeatedly recorded ceasefire violations by Russian controlled forces including the shelling of Ukrainian positions and of civilian infrastructure in the area controlled by the Ukrainian government.
