DONETSK, June 28 /ITAR-TASS/. Four observers of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) were released in the south-east of Ukraine on Saturday, June 28, the press service of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic said.
“The observers were released at 21:00 Moscow time,” the press service said.
On June 27, DNR Prime Minister Alexander Borodai confirmed that the remaining four observers would be released shortly. “We pledge to release another four OSCE observers in the next few days,” he said.
In late May, two groups of OSCE observers went missing in the east of Ukraine, each made up of four people. Contact with the first group was lost in the Donetsk Region on May 26. The second group was lost in the evening of May 29 when it was at a roadblock near the city of Severodonetsk, Lugansk Region.
One of the groups was released overnight from Thursday to Friday.
