MOSCOW, December 19. /TASS/. Russia supports the efforts taken by the Organization for Cooperation and Security in Europe (OSCE) to solve the intra-Ukrainian crisis within the framework of the Contact Group on Ukraine and its own special monitoring mission as well, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Friday at the end of the talks with his Serbian counterpart Ivisa Dacic.
“We proceed from the fact that OSCE is much in demand, in particular for creating conditions for a transparent and unbiased probe into all human rights violations and into the tragedies — at (Kiev’s) Maidan in February, in Odessa and Mariupol in May and so on,” he said.
“Russia will take an active part in facilitating this work, through the Contact Group on Ukraine and by adding (Russian) specialists, observers to the OSCE special monitoring mission,” he said.
The Russian foreign minister underscored that Russia was set to “contribute under Serbia’s chairmanship to the work on various conflicts of other mechanisms with OSCE participation.”
