On Monday, January 10, the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine (SMM) recorded 133 ceasefire violations in Donetsk region and five ceasefire violations in Luhansk region.
“In Donetsk region, the SMM recorded 133 ceasefire violations, including seven explosions (three airbursts and four undetermined),” reads the OSCE SMM daily report 5/2022 issued on January 11, 2022.
The majority of ceasefire violations occurred in areas north and north-north-east of Shyrokyne (government-controlled, 100km south of Donetsk) as well as south of Yasynuvata (non-government-controlled, 16km north-east of Donetsk).
The OSCE SMM assessed 55 violations out of those recorded near occupied Yasynuvata as a live-fire training exercise in violation of the decision of the
Trilateral Contact Group (TCG) of 3 March 2016 that prohibits the conduct of live-fire training in the security zone.
As noted, in the previous 24 hours, the Mission recorded 106 ceasefire violations in Donetsk region.
“In Luhansk region, the SMM recorded five ceasefire violations, including two undetermined explosions,” the report says.
All ceasefire violations occurred in areas inside and close to the disengagement area near Zolote (government-controlled, 60km west of Luhansk) (see below) as well as in an area south-west of Pervomaisk (non-government-controlled, 58km west of Luhansk).
In the previous 24 hours, the Mission recorded 600 ceasefire violations in Luhansk region, most of which also occurred in areas close to the disengagement area near Zolote.
