On 1 November the OT observed the border crossing of a group of 23 civilians from RF to Ukraine. RF border officials later confirmed that the group were “election observers”, allegedly from eight different countries. On 3 November the OT observed the return of a group of so-called observers but could not find out more details about their number and citizenship as interaction with the group was not possible.
