MOSCOW, March 28. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday that everybody who wanted to see the real state of things in Russian regions bordering Ukraine were given an opportunity to make observation flights and carry out inspections on the ground.
“The inspectors drew up official reports submitted to all OSCE member states. We thought that the objective information contained in them would become a subject of unbiased analysis and serve as ground for making further conclusions,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said, noting the inspectors had revealed no signs of a military threat from Russia.
“Representatives of Latvia, Germany, Switzerland, Finland, Estonia, Belgium, France and Ukraine carried out four international inspections in the European part of Russia under the 2011 Vienna document on confidence and security-building measures, did not discover any aggressive preparations or noticed any military activities except for those declared earlier,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
