The UK is a long-standing supporter of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) and Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) to Ukraine. The UK contingent is the second largest in the Mission; we are one of the largest contributors to its budget, and have provided specialist training and support. We receive regular reports from the OSCE on the SMM's work. These highlight a worrying level of ongoing ceasefire violations in the Donbas, which continue to cause casualties on a daily basis. They also show persistent obstruction of monitors, in the vast majority of cases by Russian-backed separatists. SMM public reports can be found on the OSCE website.
