It is reported by the Donetsk news agency.
“In the area of the village of Gnutovo, the location of the 2B11 Sani mortars of Ukrainian units was recorded. In order to conceal the movement of equipment and improve fortifications, the armed formations of the 36th separate marines brigade twice purposefully fired from small arms at the OSCE SMM UAV in the areas of the village of Gnutovo and the village of Talakovka, ”the statement said.
It is noted that due to shelling of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the OSCE mission in both cases was forced to suspend UAV flights.
Earlier, an officer of the press service of the People’s Police Directorate of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic, Ivan Filiponenko, said that the militia had shot down four UAV drones near the contact line.
