In Digest, Ukraine

The following is an excerpt from the daily report of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) to Ukraine, “based on information received as of 18:00 (Kyiv time), 13 January 2015”.

The Special Monitoring Mission met the head of the newly established co-ordination centre at the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) premises in government-controlled Starobilsk (90km north of Luhansk).  The SMM was informed that the co-ordination centre would be responsible for the implementation of order 144 “T” issued by the “Anti-Terrorism Operation” (“ATO”) operational headquarters on 29 December 2014.  He explained that order 144 “T”, which will enter into force on 21 January, aims to improve the control of people and vehicles traveling to and from areas that are not under the control of the government. The order will require all those wishing to travel between government-controlled areas and territories controlled by the “Lugansk People’s Republic” (“LPR”) and the “Donetsk People’s Republic” (“DPR”) to obtain a permit, which will be necessary for both individuals and vehicles, including public transport.
