Medvedchuk: Only the OSCE provides objective information about the Donbass

Медведчук: Только ОБСЕ предоставляет объективную информацию о Донбассе

Medvedchuk praised the OSCE for objectivity

The politician is convinced that it is impossible to interfere with the Mission to do its job

Representatives of the “party of war”, ignoring the calls of the OSCE in restoring peace and stability in Ukraine, continue work on the division of the country, noted in his blog, Viktor Medvedchuk.

The politician is convinced that the Special monitoring mission (SMM) of the OSCE, around the clock monitoring of what is happening in the Donbass, provides unbiased, objective information.

“Apparently, for this reason, domestic “unbiased” (with rare exceptions) the media prefer to relay information received from the OSCE reports, and… press center of the ATO headquarters, leaving Ukrainians in the dark about the real situation in Donbass”, – said Medvedchuk.

He noted that, according to the OSCE, in spite of the implementation of the Minsk agreements, the number of attacks in the ATO zone over the past week have doubled, and for a month only in the Luhansk region killed seven civilians, since the beginning of the year 341.

“According to the OSCE, both sides of the conflict, with attacks using weapons prohibited by the accords. SMM recorded more than 550 cases of the use of heavy weapons and weapons banned by the Minsk agreements (tanks, mortars and artillery)”, – says Medvedchuk.

Politics were angered by the fact that the city Happiness of the Luhansk region the military is not allowed to pass through the mined bridge the car of the representatives of the OSCE SMM and refused to disarm. And this is despite the OSCE’s call to remove mine immediately, as, in the opinion of the mission, “bridges intended to unite people, not divide them.”

“Indeed, bridges have to combine the territory and people… both literally and figuratively. Sorry, do not want to recognize Ukrainian politics. Most of the initiatives taken under pressure from the “party of war”, works in the division of the country”, – said Medvedchuk.

The politician is convinced that there can be a speech about any reintegration of Donbass, the Ukrainian authorities drove the people of the region in terms of economic, transport and energy blockade.

“Is it possible to return Donbass to Ukraine, and Ukraine at the Donbass, if the inhabitants of the region are treated as second-class citizens? I’d like to believe that the Ukrainian politicians will hear the appeals of the OSCE and, based on the Minsk agreement as a Foundation for the restoration of peace and stability in Ukraine, will finally work on the “stitching” of the country”, – expressed the hope the politician.

We will remind, earlier he declared that the United States dealt a blow to the Minsk process.
