BERLIN, March 18, 21:26 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia should facilitate the dispatch of a mission of international observers to Ukraine, Germany's Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said Tuesday on the sidelines of a conference of the parliamentary faction of the Social Democratic Party of Germany.
"The most elementary thing Russia should do is to make its contribution so that the mission would have an appropriate mandate," he said, adding that the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) had not taken a final decision on dispatching the mission to Ukraine yet.
