Donetsk, Apr 28 - DAN. The radio-controlled bomb found near Khartsyzsk on Friday afternoon might have been used against OSCE Special Monitoring Mission representatives, a DPR Operations Command source told Donetsk News Agency.

“As this road is often used by OSCE in hardware withdrawal verification missions, we don’t rule out that the bomb could have been set off against a passing patrol,” the officer said.

On April 23 2017, a OSCE Special Monitoring Mission car hit a tank mine in the vicinity of Prishib township killing one OSCE monitor and wounding another three, according to LPR State Security Ministry.

DPR head Alexander Zakharchenko expressed the hope for unbiased investigation and the republic’s readiness to enhance the observers’ safety with additional measures.*jk
