Observers from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe's Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine (OSCE SMM) only have limited access to the areas of disengagement of forces near the villages of Zolote, Stanytsia Luhanska, and Petrivske (all in Luhansk region) on Monday.

The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine announced this in a statement on Facebook, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"Today again only limited access for OSCE SMM to Pervomaisk/Zolote, Stanytsia Luhanska and Petrivske/Bohdanivka disengagement areas - UAF, 'LPR', 'DPR' have failed to guarantee SMM's security [possible mines]," the statement said.

It added that the mission is ready and able to monitor, but it needs access.

According to the statement, the Joint Center on Control and Coordination of issues related to the ceasefire regime and the stabilization of the situation on the contact line (JCCC) should assist in ensuring safe and unhindered access for the special monitoring mission and co-ordinate de-mining operations.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the OSCE SMM to Ukraine has called for cooperation with the JCCC in supporting the ceasefire and intensifying the clearing of mines in Donbas.
