The appearance of an American unmanned aircraft above the demarcation line is detrimental to the implementation of the Minsk agreements. The permanent plenipotentiary representative of the DPR at negotiations in Minsk, the Chairman of the DPR People’s Council Denis Pushilin reported it to the newspaper “Outlook”.
ʺThe monitoring and verification of all developments in the zone of conflict in south-eastern Ukraine is entrusted to the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission. If the flight is performed by any other organization, mission, and furthermore by the intelligence of any Western country, of course, this is the most direct violation of the Minsk agreements.
If the information is confirmed and this is really a drone that is capable of recording, collecting, transmitting intelligence, it is probable that the information gathered will reach the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
We are therefore categorically opposed to the drone flights of any other side over the demarcation line.ʺ Denis Pushilin summed up.
