MOSCOW, October 10. /TASS/. Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov plans to discuss with Secretary General of the Organisation for Security and Co-Operation in Europe (OSCE) Lamberto Zannier the crisis in Ukraine and Organisation’s role in its settlement during Zannier’s visit to Moscow planned for October 12, the Russian foreign ministry said on its website on Saturday.
"As for the activities of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission in Ukraine we shall draw Zannier’s attention to necessary objectivity and impartiality of its reports," the ministry said. "We are for having additional observers, so that they make the maximum allowed number of 1,000 people (now they are 543)."
Besides, representatives of the Russian foreign ministry want to discuss the problem of the migration process in Europe and further dialogue at the OSCE platform on searching settlement of the European security crisis.
The objective of Zannier’s working trips is to receive comments on OSCE current work and to hear recommendations regarding the Organisation’s key directions of work. This year, he has visited already Washington and Brussels. His previous visit to Russia was in June 2014, where he visited Moscow and temporary accommodation facilities for Ukrainian refugees, organised in the Rostov region.
