The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe's (OSCE) monitors in eastern Ukraine have reported the use of heavy weapons by both sides of the conflict in eastern Ukraine, OSCE Deputy Chief Monitor Alexander Hug said Thursday.

"OSCE monitors have witnessed yet more violence resulting in the injury and death of civilians and combatants, as well as the destruction of housing and other infrastructure," Hug told reporters.

"Moreover, there is reported use by all sides of heavy weapons, including 122mm and 152mm caliber artillery," he added.

According to Hug, the OSCE has also recorded less military hardware at storage facilities of both Kiev-led forces and eastern Ukrainian militia than claimed.
