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.
