The latest version of the Smerch SMM Monitoring Toolkit is available now from SMM’s website.
The SMM has recently started monitoring Ukraine’s armed forces.
But while the Smea-M remains a useful tool for monitoring military activity, it is not designed to monitor civil and civilian institutions.
“There is no reason to expect that the SMM monitors will be able to observe all the civilian institutions, which is what the aim of the toolkit is,” said the report’s author, the Ukrainian President, Oleksandr Turchynov.
The aim is to establish whether there are any incidents, and if so, whether there is any deterioration of the situation.
“This is a tool which will help to understand the state of the country,” the report says.
But, in the context of the conflict, the tool’s use will be limited.
“The SMM will not be able at the moment to monitor the whole country,” it says.
This is because of the current hostilities, the lack of coordination between the parties involved, and the fact that the SMM can only be deployed in areas with military objectives, which makes it unsuitable for monitoring the civilian population.
The toolkit will be updated with more data in the coming months.
“It will provide a very valuable tool for the monitoring of the war, but only for the moment,” the author says.
“After that, the need for an additional monitoring mechanism will increase.”
The Smeasmea is a small, medium and heavy automatic gun mounted on a vehicle.
It fires one shell per second, and can be used for a number of different tasks, including target observation, observation of military equipment and command and control, and reconnaissance.
It is one of the most widely used Russian-made automatic guns, but it has been heavily damaged during the fighting, with the latest batch of parts costing nearly $2 million.
