A minibus with civilians hit a mine in the Donbas conflict zone. Joint] press center reported this on Facebook.

“Today, at 12:30, a car exploded 50 meters from the Olenivka checkpoint, where representatives of the Russian occupation forces are checking people entering Donbas territory. As a result of the explosion, two people died on the spot, three were injured," said in a statement.

Earlier, the UN reported that the territory of Donbas is one of the most mined regions in the world, and Ukraine ranked first in the world in terms of the number of dead as a result of mine explosions.

February 21, the drone of the OSCE mission recorded four jet military airplanes above the village of Lastochkine. This settlement is controlled by Ukraine and is located near the demarcation line, according to the website of the mission.
"Four military jets flew over Lastochkine (19 km north-west from Donetsk) from north to south, and then turned to the south-west at an altitude of about 3000 feet (915 meters, - ed.)," the mission’s report says.
According to the OSCE data, in comparison with the previous reporting period, observers recorded fewer violations of the ceasefire regime in the Donetsk region, but more such cases in the Luhansk region.
