The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) to Ukraine continues to encounter barriers to free movement within the area of the armed conflict in Donbas, particularly in territories not controlled by Kyiv.

In order to get to Debaltseve today, OSCE SMM monitors came to the checkpoint of Mayorsk and were stopped there for more than 30 minutes, Principal Deputy Chief Monitor of the OSCE SMM Alexander Hug said at a press briefing on July 17. The prohibited access is a typical situation, particularly in territories not controlled by Kyiv, he said.

As in the cases of ceasefire violations and presence of mines, restrictions of freedom of movement take place because some people refuse to observe the rules set out in signed documents, Hug said.
