MOSCOW, February 25. /ITAR-TASS/. OSCE Secretary-General Lamberto Zannier will visit “Moscow within hours; in the Russian capital, he plans to hold talks with Russia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Lavrov regarding the situation in Ukraine”. Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Alexei Meshkov said this on Tuesday.
“He would likely be raising questions connected with Ukraine,” the diplomat noted. “We will listen to his suggestions.” Meshkov stressed the need to “return the situation into legal framework”. “The OSCE is an organization that should favor it,” the diplomat said.
“There are many questions over the situation in Ukraine, particularly freedom of speech,” Meshkov said, noting that “decisions are being taken (in Ukraine) that contradict the OSCE rules”.
“We hope that OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media Dunja Mijatovic will visit Kiev soon. Let’s listen to what she will say. She has some ideas,” Meshkov added.
