VIENNA, May 13 /ITAR-TASS/. Roadmap for settling the crisis in Ukraine proposed by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) has been supported by Russia, the US, the EU, and the authorities in Kiev.
A statement by the organization said the Swiss President, Didier Burkhalter, who is Chairman-in-Office of the OSCE, mapped out the contours of the roadmap at top-level meetings with participants in the Geneva discussions. He received a positive reaction from Ukraine, Russia, the U.S. and the EU.
