The OSCE Chairman-in-Office, Swiss President Didier Burkhalter has appointed his special representative for Ukraine, Washesha said at the 4th St Petersburg International Legal Forum on Wednesday.
Answering a question if the representative maintains contacts with Ukrainian presidential envoy for conflict settlement in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions Irina Gerashchenko, he said: “Of course.”
The same contacts will be maintained with Russian envoys, Wasesha said.
He did not rule out a possibility of conducting an investigation into the death of Russian journalists in the south-east of Ukraine.
Commenting on the tragedy in Odessa in early May, he said, “We had to wait for the results of the presidential elections.”
Now such report is necessary with the consensus by the OSCE member-states, Wasesha said.
