Between 13:27 and 13:38 hrs, 18 February, an SMM long-range unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) experienced dual GPS jamming while flying at an altitude of approximately 6,000ft in an area near Donetskyi (non-government-controlled, 49km west of Luhansk), in proximity of the contact line.
At 13:38 hrs, about 600m south-east of Berdianka (non-government-controlled, 45km west of Luhansk), the UAV began spinning uncontrollably and losing altitude. The SMM assessed that the UAV had crashed in the area.
The SMM flew a mini-UAV near Berdianka, but could not locate the long-range UAV. The Mission will continue to follow up.
