"Occupation authorities of the "DNR" demand that they be allowed to the AFU positions for a joint "inspection" of the fortifications near Horlivka, - Natalia Nikonorova, who calls herself "Minister of Foreign Affairs", stated.
According to her, the leadership of the "republic" proposes to convene an extraordinary meeting of the Contact Group on September 9 at 12:00.
"We propose to convene an extraordinary meeting of the Contact Group tomorrow, on September 9, at 12:00 in order to make a decision on the issue of holding a joint inspection of representatives of the "Donetsk People's Republic", as well as representatives of Ukraine in the JCCC with the assistance of the OSCE representatives regarding fixing the elimination of violations in displacement of positions of the armed formations of Ukraine near the settlement of Shumy", - Nikonorova stated.
She assured that a letter with a corresponding appeal had already been sent to the OSCE.
Allegedly, the occupiers have "irrefutable evidence" of Kyiv's engineering work, prohibited by additional measures to control the ceasefire, and the OSCE is demonstrating a proper reaction.
As previously reported, the OSCE SMM states that after 5 July, the JF units did not undertake any engineering work on the indicated section of the front line. Occupation authorities of the "DNR" assure the opposite and threaten Ukraine to attack the AFU positions in order to destroy the "illegally erected" fortifications. They named 10:00 a.m. on September 9 as the next date for this attack.
