VIENNA, May 31 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s permanent representative to the OSCE has said a new negotiator on maintaining the dialogue in Ukraine will be appointed within a week.
One can expect Wolfgang Ischinger to leave his post, Andrei Kelin has said.
He quoted Ischinger as saying earlier he “will only work till presidential elections” in Ukraine.
The OSCE secretariat also confirmed that Ischinger had decided not to extend the mandate, Kelin told Itar-Tass on Saturday.
“Now a new mediator is being searched for. There are candidates from several countries,” he said.
The next roundtable for national dialogue in Ukraine was scheduled to be held in Chernovtsy, Ukraine’s south-west. However, the date has not been specified yet, Kelin said.
The new OSCE negotiator should prepare the meeting, he added.
