The OSCE extended the mandate of the observers at Russian border checkpoints 2

The OSCE permanent Council approved the decision to extend the mandate of the OSCE observer mission at two Russian checkpoints “Gukovo” and “Donetsk” on the border with Ukraine until 31 July 2017. About it reports a press-service of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine.

In connection with this decision, the delegation of Ukraine to the OSCE said that Russia is the only state in the OSCE, which prevents the extension of the mandate of the mission for the entire parcel boundary adjacent to the temporarily uncontrolled Kiev territory of individual regions of Donetsk and Lugansk regions.

“Such actions of the Russian Federation indicate a conscious reluctance 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”, - is told in the comment of the MFA of Ukraine.

The delegation of Ukraine urged the Russian Federation to the strict fulfilment of their commitments under the Minsk agreements, primarily the provisions of paragraph 4 of the Minsk Protocol of 5 September 2014 to establish control and continuous monitoring of the OSCE over the temporarily uncontrolled section of the Ukrainian-Russian state border with creation of a security zone along the border with the Ukraine and Russia.
