Donetsk, Sep 18 – DAN. The OSCE and human rights organizations should react immediately to Kiev's practice of using combat UAVs and take measures against military and political command of Ukraine, said DPR Operations Command deputy commander Eduard Basurin.

"Ukrainian media sources praise the new Sokol combat drone, which is a lethal weapon and banned in Donbass under the Minsk Agreements. Besides, this UAV claimed to be developed by Ukrainian scientists is actually of Polish origin."

Basurin emphasized that the employment of such arms aggravates the situation and urged the OSCE SMM and human rights organizations to pay attention to the fact and to apply restrictions against Ukrainian authorities and military command.

According to the Article 7 of the Minsk Memorandum dated 19 September 2014, the use of combat aircrafts and UAVs is banned along the contact line in the 30km-wide zone of ceasefire, with the only exception made for the OSCE SMM drones. *ot
