Donetsk, Jul 29 – DAN.  Ukrainian military do not allow the OSCE SMM members to the location where their UAV has possibly crashed after loss of contact due to jamming by Kiev forces, citing alleged mine hazard, said the head of the DPR People’s Militia command press service Daniil Bezsonov.

The SMM lost control over its UAV in the vicinity of Vesyelaya Dolina, four km south-east of Artyomovsk, after it had been jammed by Kiev forces with electronic warfare.

“The fighters of the 30th brigade are actively intervening with SMM’s search of the UAV, not allowing the mission members to the probable crash site citing mine hazard,” Bezsonov said.

Earlier reports said that Kiev forces had activated electronic warfare employment to impede SMM’s efforts to monitor the ceasefire.*ot*pp
