OSCE Says Security Situation In Ukraine Deteriorating Significantly
5 years
Russian-Backed Fighters Reportedly Shell Ukrainian Positions 30 Times

The OSCE is warning that the situation in Ukraine has become increasingly worrisome over the last week. RFE/RL reports:

The situation in eastern Ukraine has deteriorated significantly in the last week, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) warned Sunday, with heavy weaponry such as tanks and howitzers spotted along the front lines.

Such weapons were supposed to have been removed according to an agreement signed by the government and pro-Russian separatists in February, the deputy head of the Ukraine mission, Alexander Hug, said during a visit to the port city of Mariupol.

There had been an alarming increase in the number of rebel and government checkpoints, which were becoming targets for attacks and therefore endangering civilians stuck in the queues of cars that build up at them, Hug said.

The same report says that 5 Ukrainian servicemen were killed in the last 24 hours when their vehicle hit a landmine, and 10 others have been injured by fighting across the country.
