The militants of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) terrorist organization have shut off the OSCE SMM’s remote monitoring equipment in Donetsk region, claiming they followed orders of their leader Alexander Zakharchenko, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to UNIAN.

“In violation of the Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements, armed “DPR” members stopped the work of the SMM’s remote monitoring equipment in the area of the Donetsk airport. The SMM learned that they had disconnected the power supply to related SMM equipment in Donetsk city, claiming they had an order to do so by Mr. Alexander Zakharchenko,” the OSCE SMM said in a statement.

In addition, the armed “DPR” members asked the SMM to remove the equipment and threatened to forcefully remove it themselves otherwise.
