KIEV, April 14. /ITAR-TASS/. International military observers have arrived in Ukraine in compliance with the OSCE Vienna Document on Confidence and Security Building Measures, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said.
The mission includes inspectors from the Netherlands, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Georgia, Belgium, and Luxembourg, the ministry’s spokesman, Yevgen Perebyinis said on Monday.
The purpose of the mission “is to visit south-eastern regions and record facts of possible unusual military activities and provocations aimed at destabilizing the situation in Ukraine”, he said.
The inspection initiated by the Netherlands has replaced the Poland-led mission which was in Ukraine from April 3 to April 13, Perebyinis said.
“Ukraine wants military observers to have a permanent status until the situation normalizes. We expect that the OSCE will continue its activity in Ukraine after the Dutch mission’s mandate expires,” he said.
The OSCE Monitoring Mission is currently in Ukraine, Perebyinis said, adding that the mission had visited Donetsk, Sloviansk, Krasny Liman, and Kharkiv over the last three days.
“The mission regularly informs the OSCE Permanent Council about the results of its work,” he said.
