UNITED NATIONS, March 04, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia admits the possibility of sending observers of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) to Ukraine, but is afraid that this process might take a long time, Russian Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin said at the UN Security Council on Monday.
“We do not deny that these institutions may be involved,” the diplomat stressed, speaking about the possibility of sending an international mission to Ukraine. However, he warned that “months will pass as they observe or prepare to observe.” “God knows what may happen there during this time,” said the RF official.
The sending to Ukraine of OSCE observers, as well as a mediation mission for the crisis resolution, has been supported, in particular, by the United States.
