OSCE warns eastern Ukraine fighting to surge this winter

Berlin (dpa) - Fighting in eastern Ukraine has steadily risen in recent weeks and has the potential to surge this winter, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), which independently monitors the conflict, said Friday.

"When the ground freezes in the winter, it unfortunately will be much easier to move the heavy weapons," Alexander Hug, deputy head of the OSCE‘s Ukraine mission, said in comments carried by German media group Funke-Mediengruppe.

The Ukrainian military and pro-Russian separatists have been fighting for more than three years in Ukraine‘s two eastern-most regions, which border Russia. A comprehensive peace plan brokered by Germany and France has yet to be implemented.

Five soldiers have been killed in the past 24 hours, the Ukrainian military reported Friday. Both sides of the conflict have blamed the other for the recent escalation of violence.

Tanks, artillery and rocket launchers of the opposing sides are within sight along the front line of about 500 kilometres, Hug said.

This year there have been more than 400 civilian victims of the conflict. The ceasefire has been violated more than 330,000 times.

"If the military forces along the contact line are not withdrawn and the heavy weapons are not removed, the situation will further intensify," Hug said.
