MOSCOW, March 31. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow has suggested including Russian experts into the OSCE mission in Ukraine, Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin said.
“We all have agreed that this mission deserves a chance, and suggested that it includes our experts as well,” Karasin noted.
“OSCE plays a significant role in exploring the situation, discussing it and proposing scenarios (for the settlement of the crisis),” the diplomat added. “We hope that it (the OSCE mission) will conduct an important and positive work,” Karasin concluded.
“A chance should be given to the mission. We’ve suggested including our experts,” Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin said on Monday.
“We hope the work will be important positive,” Karasin said.
“We’re ready to discuss all issues. Now political discussions in Russia and abroad are focusing on the deepest crisis in Ukraine,” he said.
“The elections scheduled for May 25 are an important factor. But the constitutional reform is more important: it will meet the interests of all regions, all peoples and help create a well-balanced and long-term statehood architecture,” Karasin said, adding “Nobody beside Ukrainians have to predetermine it.”
“Russia and the world community will continue discussions on this issue as far as we can judge by statements made by (Russian Foreign Minister) Sergey Lavrov and (US Secretary of State) John Kerry in Paris,” Karasin said.
“We’ll hope that the agreements of February 21 will be complied with. Illegal radical and nationalist units will be disbanded and disarmed,” he said.
