The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission does not confirm human rights activists' reports alleging the use of cluster munitions in the army operation zone in eastern Ukraine.

"We have about 90 observers in eastern Ukraine. If we saw something like that, we would have recorded it, but that has not currently been recorded. All we have to say about ammunition or shelling appears in our daily reports. By this time there was nothing in our reports about it," OSCE spokesman Michael Bociurkiw told Deutsche Welle, speaking of a Human Rights Watch report.

Daily reports issued by OSCE observers record every shelling incident in Donbass. Observers promptly visit incident sites.

The international human rights organization, Human Rights Watch, said on October 21 that during a weeklong investigation conducted in eastern Ukraine the organization's experts recorded the broad use of cluster munitions in the hostilities in over ten urban and countryside districts.
