Read in Russian

LUGANSK, December 2 (Lugansk Media Centre) – Kiev forces interfered with the OSCE SMM's UAVs operating outside Novotoshkovskoye, said LPR People's Militia press service officer Ivan Filiponenko.

He said that Ukrainian forces keep disguising and concealing their arms and weapons from the international mission and resort to using electronic warfare systems for that purpose.

"Ukrainian electronic warfare mobile groups of the 305th separate battalion have been reported operating outside Novotoshkovskoye for the benefit of the commander of the 14th Ukrainian brigade, jamming control signals of SMM's UAVs."

According to the Article 7 of the Minsk Memorandum dated 19 September 2014, the use of combat aircrafts and UAVs is banned along the contact line in the 30km-wide zone of ceasefire, with the only exception made for the OSCE SMM aerial vehicles used to monitor the situation.
