Whilst cleaning snow drifts on the highway near Pervomaisk, which was carried out under the supervision of a patrol of the OSCE SMM, the area was shelled by the UAF, who opened fire from the UAF-controlled settlement of Novoaleksandrovka, reports the correspondent of “Donbass Today” with reference to the Representation of the LPR in the Joint Centre for Control and Co-ordination (JCCC).

“It should be noted that, despite receiving work security guarantees from the Ukrainian side of the JCCC and the existence in this region of mirrored OSCE SMM patrols, Ukrainian paramilitary groups flagrantly violated the ceasefire regime”

it is said in the message

The representation added that in connection with the threat to the security of personnel of the Pervomaisk housing and public utilities management and to employees of the OSCE SMM, work on ploughing the road was stopped, and the employees involved in this work were evacuated from the zone of shelling.
