MOSCOW, March 31. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Federation Council upper house of parliament has expressed hope that the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly will make real contribution to settling the deepest political crisis in Ukraine.
“We hope that the activity of the OSCE mission to Ukraine will be impartial, balanced and neutral,” Speaker Valentina Matviyenko said after a meeting with OSCE PA Chairman Ranko Krivokapic said on Monday.
“The Federation Council delegation to the OSCE PA seeks to make significant contribution to its activity. It is searching for uniting topics and putting forth initiatives,” she said.
Commenting on the situation in Ukraine, Matviyenko said, “The OSCE PA conclusions should be based on new political realities.”
