“We support Germany’s initiative that Russian, Ukrainian and OSCE representatives working in Ukraine and Russia should share information regularly in the real-time mode about all incidents," said Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.
"We are also interested in this because our territory has been shelled from Ukraine from time to time. According to our estimates, this is done not deliberately but it is not easier for those people who suffer from such shelling.”
Russia would also support faster supply of essential equipment for the OSCE mission, including drones, Lavrov said.
OSCE observers have not registered any instances of illegal crossing of the Russian-Ukrainian border, Lavrov said on Monday in comments on Western accusations that Russian military are involved in the conflict in south-eastern Ukraine.
“We have responsibility for the border. If somebody has facts showing there has been some illegal border crossing, we ask them to demonstrate these facts,” he said. “Laying claims that are not substantiated is hopeless,” the foreign minister added.
Lavrov said Russia had taken certain steps so that “nobody doubt it is interested in ensuring due control on the border, preventing people or hardware that is not allowed from crossing it”.
“All this is reflected in reports by OSCE observers, who are not reporting anything wrong,” the foreign minister said.
