On the north-western edge of Novohryhorivka (non-government-controlled, 61km north-east of Donetsk), the SMM saw for the first time an improvised mine hazard sign, with “passage forbidden mines” written in Russian, attached to a wooden gate across a road leading to Nyzhnie Lozove (non-government-controlled, 59km north-east of Donetsk).
About 650m south-east of a checkpoint of the armed formations near Horlivka (non-government-controlled, 39km north-east of Donetsk), on the south-eastern side of road T-0513, the SMM again saw a white improvised mine hazard sign with “mines” written in Russian, attached to a wooden stick in the ground.
