ARTEK (Yalta), July 7. /TASS/. Observers from the Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) say most violations of ceasefire are committed by Ukrainian forces, Russian Foreign Ministry’s official spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Thursday.
"OSCE registers violations (ceasefire), most of them - 70-75% - are committed by Ukrainian forces. Disappearance of weapons from warehouses is also registered mostly from the Ukrainian side," Zakharova said.
Russia constantly draws attention to these instances, she noted. "Our permanent representative almost daily informs OSCE representatives about Russia’s assessment of the situation, draws attention to concrete facts," she stressed.
Moscow also works actively on settling the Ukrainian conflict at other platforms as well, the diplomat said. "We work in the trilateral Contact Group, where Russian representatives are present. We hold talks with our Western colleagues - telephone talks with US State Secretary John Kerry, recent talks with French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault in Paris. Of course, there is also dialogue with US colleagues - between (Russian presidential aide) Surkov and (US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria) Nuland," Zakharova said.
"Everything possible is being done to prevent the disruption of disengaging the sides," she concluded.
