The militants of the terrorist group "LPR" denied representatives of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) the inspection of "humanitarian aid" from the Russian Federation, according to the mission's report of March 30.
The mission noted that the armed militant did not allow the OSCE SMM to enter the storage facility, where cars with humanitarian aid stopped.
“The SMM observed a ten-truck convoy marked with “Humanitarian Aid from Russia”written in Russian on banners on the trucks that travelled through Molodohvardiisk (non-government-controlled, 35km south-east of Luhansk) and Luhansk city. The convoy consisted of ten transportation trucks, three service trucks, two ambulances and two cars marked with “police”. At a compound in Luhansk city, the SMM observed the transportation trucks being unloaded and plastic-wrapped boxes being unloaded by ten men wearing uniforms bearing markings of the Ministry of Emergencies of the Russian Federation. The SMM was prevented from entering the compound by an armed man in military-type clothing.* Later in the morning, the SMM saw the same convoy travelling south-east on the south-eastern edge of Luhansk city,” reads the report
This is not the first time the staff of the OSCE SMM was not allowed to inspect trucks with the inscription "Humanitarian Aid from the Russian Federation". The members of the LPR argue that the observers needed a permission from other members of the LPR to access the facility.
Earlier, QHA reported that OSCE SMM informed on an incident which occurred in the occupied Donetsk. The militants of the so-called "DPR" did not allow journalists from Moscow to shoot in the Trudivski area in occupied city, and the footage was destroyed
