VIENNA, September 03 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia may give consent to prolonging the mission of observers placed by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) at the Donetsk and checkpoints on the Russian side of the border with Ukraine, the permanent representative to the OSCE, Andrei Kelin told Itar-Tass Wednesday.
“This will depend on what the situation actually requires,” he said.
“I don’t rule this out,” Kelin said. “We’ll watch the real developments. We’re getting cautious questions now about how we would treat a prolongation of the mission but it’s quite difficult to forecast right now what kind of events there’ll be there in a couple of months.”
“We don’t have any complaints against the commission’s work,” he said. “They’re working in exactly the way that was conceived from the very start and that we expected.”
“They reported more than once on the shelling from the Ukrainian side, which the checkpoints sustained,” Kelin said. “There were no fantasies in their accounts and we liked very much they recorded the passage of the humanitarian convoy across the border - practically hour by hour."
