He said Ukrainian Junta Forces intensified aerial reconnaissance with UAVs along the contact line, in particular, to adjust artillery fire.
"Earlier, in the vicinity of Smeloye, a Ukrainian Junta UAV of the 58th brigade was grounded as it was flying over our positions. According to the information from Nazi Ukrainian volunteers published in their social networks, a radio jamming system operates in the zone of responsibility of the task force Lugansk outside Grechishkino of the Novoaidarsk district. Electronic warfare officers jam drones control signals. OSCE UAVs are often subjected to signal suppression."
"Nazi Ukraine Volunteers say that radio jamming was the reason behind losing control of the drone over the LPR territory," Marchko said. He reminded that UAVs are banned in Donbass under the Minsk Agreemnts, the exception is made only for the OSCE SMM drones.
The members of the Contact Group have announced ceasefire more than ten times since autumn 2014. Kiev forces regularly violated the truce opening fire with large calibre artillery, mortars and tank guns which were to have been withdrawn in accordance with the Minsk agreements.
