The OSCE recorded 12 "Grad" multiple rocket launchers in Donbas, which the militants placed in violation of the demarcation line.

This is stated in the report of the OSCE mission.

As reported, on April 19, an OSCE drone recorded six "Grads" near the occupied settlement of Kaiutyne: one of them was hauling trucks.

Six more "Grad" launchers were noticed near Chornukhyne. The mission notes that the militants placed these weapons in violation of the demarcation line.

Also, observers saw 42 tanks at the test site in the uncontrolled territory of the Donetsk region.

The mission also recorded one anti-aircraft missile system, placed in violation of the demarcation line, in a residential area in the controlled settlement.

As Rubryka reported, the occupants in Donbas have been firing 120-caliber mortars at the outskirts of the settlement of Pivdenne for several days now. On April 19, anti-tank missile systems, anti-aircraft guns, grenade launchers of various systems, and large-caliber machine guns were also recorded there.

The armed forces of the Russian Federation are building up troops near the state border of Ukraine in the north, east, and south, as well as in the occupied Crimea. At the same time, the Russian Federation is conducting a propaganda campaign to justify aggression against Ukraine.

Russia says troops are being thrown over because of an alleged NATO threat. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyi believes Russia is increasing its presence near the borders to test the West: in particular, how support for Ukraine will change.
