The Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) has pledged all-round support to Ukraine in the preparation for snap presidential elections scheduled for May 25, 2014, Tim Guldimann, Personal Envoy of the OSCE chairperson in Ukraine, said at a meeting with Mikhail Okhendovsky, chairman of Ukraine’s Central Electoral Commission.
