    The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine (SMM) has reported four Ukrainian army tanks parked behind a building in Avdiivka in violation of respective withdrawal lines.

    VIENNA (Sputnik) — The monitors from the OSCE SMM have recorded the presence of four T-64 tanks in Avdiivka in violation of withdrawal lines, the SMM said on Thursday.

    "In violation of the respective withdrawal lines, in government-controlled areas the SMM observed…four tanks (T-64) parked behind a building in Avdiivka," the SMM said in a daily report covering the situation in the conflict zone in eastern Ukraine as of February 1.

    ​The SMM specified that it recorded fewer ceasefire violations in both Donetsk and Luhansk regions by both sides of the conflict compared to the previous reporting period, "but the overall situation remained highly tense."
