The document has been drawn up with a view to developing the Ministry's interaction with the UN and the OSCE, the newspaper points out. Experts believe that in this way Russia will get more opportunities for assistance to the international community in settling the conflict in Ukraine.
A source in the group of drafters of the bill told Izvestia, "Russia's Interior Ministry currently lacks legal grounds to send staff members for work in the subdivisions of the UN and OSCE Secretariats".
"This draft decree will enable a larger number of (Ministry) staff members to participate in the work of the UN and the OSCE and to fill vacancies in police managerial positions. This will contribute to enhancing the Russian Federation's prestige in the international arena," an official at the Interior Ministry's press center emphasized.
