Diplomats harshly commented on the reluctance of Russia to host the OSCE mission on the border.

This is stated in the message on the website of the MFA of Ukraine.

“Disappointed with the position of the Russian Federation, which remains the only state in the OSCE, preventing the extension of the mandate of the Mission for the entire parcel boundary adjacent to the temporarily uncontrolled by the Ukrainian government of the territory of certain districts of Donetsk and Lugansk regions. We consider such actions of the Russian Federation as a conscious unwillingness to help de-escalate the situation in Donbas and the intention to continue the supply of heavy weapons, military equipment and ammunition, regular troops, militias and mercenaries, to support terrorist activities on the territory of Ukraine. In this regard, the delegation of Ukraine to the OSCE voiced interpretative statement in connection with the adoption of this decision”, – stated on the website.

The diplomats also urged the Russian side to strictly fulfill their obligations under the Minsk agreements. Including for comprehensive and continuous monitoring of the OSCE at the border.
