“I informed Alexander Hug, chief of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s special monitoring mission, that the Ukrainian armed forces had accomplished a breakthrough to the Boeing crash territory, where they are deploying armored vehicles and are digging trenches. Fighting has been on in part of the area where the plane’s wreckage fell,” he said.

Members of the OSCE mission, led by Alexander Hug, made the decision on July 28 morning to travel to the crash scene, but they were compelled to return to Donetsk, Antiufeyev said.

“The OSCE representatives could see combat operations ongoing near Shakhtarsk, as well as Ukrainian warplanes flying in an attacking mode. The OSCE experts’ safety cannot be guaranteed in such a setting. As far as I know, they are returning to Donetsk now,” he said.
