MOSCOW, March 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia proposed not to limit the area of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) mission in Ukraine only by eastern and southern regions of the country.
“The OSCE is debating an idea of sending a monitoring mission. We take this idea positively so that the mission will work not only in south-eastern Ukraine, but also in other parts of the country,” the Kremlin official noted.
EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said earlier the OSCE may decide on sending a special OSCE monitoring mission to Ukraine on March 18 or 19. Meanwhile, in her words, OSCE observers should focus on the situation of ethnic minorities.
