VIENNA, April 18, 15:44 /ITAR-TASS/. A mission of the Organisation for Security and Co-Operation in Europe (OSCE) in Ukraine has received from its headquarters in Vienna an order to begin implementing measures to de-escalate the situation in that country, agreed in Geneva on Thursday at a meeting of foreign ministers representing Russia, the US, the EU and Ukraine.
“Work has begun in Vienna despite the Easter holidays, and the mission in Ukraine has received an order to begin action without delay,” Russia’s ambassador to the organisation Andrei Kelin said.
He continued saying that on Friday Switzerland, the current chair, organised a meeting which “discussed a certain set of steps” the observers should undertake in Ukraine.
“The mission is ordered to fulfil everything in the Geneva agreements,” he said adding detailed instruments will be offered early next week already.
At the same time, Kelin stressed the remaining military presence in Ukraine’s eastern regions affects the work of OSCE’s observers.
