Deputy Chairman of the Special Monitoring Mission (SMM), the OSCE, Alexander Hug warned that Donbas threatened ecological disaster.
Storage of chemical waste from phenol plant in Novhorodske sandwiched between the positions of the parties and was just 400 meters from each other. In the worst case, all Donetsk region may be contaminated, – said in a statement.
According to Hug, who visited a number of settlements along the contact line in Donbas, the parties of the conflict need to cease-fire and withdraw weapons in the area.
