VIENNA, July 08. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia urged the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) to hold an extraordinary meeting of the OSCE Permanent Council to discuss a tense humanitarian situation in Ukraine, Russian Permanent Representative in the OSCE Andrey Kelin told ITAR-TASS on Tuesday.

“Today we have raised the question to convene the OSCE Permanent Council as quickly as possible to discuss the humanitarian situation in Ukraine, it is bad and keeps deteriorating,” he said.

“Today we have moved in OSCE Permanent Council’s draft decision through Swiss presidency. The draft decision contains a demand to stop combat actions immediately, withdraw Ukrainian military forces from the conflict zone, Ukrainian government should create humanitarian corridors for civilians and permit immediately delivery of food supplies and other types of humanitarian aid,” Kelin added.

Continued military operation in east Ukraine may lead to a humanitarian catastrophe, Russian permanent representative in the OSCE said.

“We are quite concerned that (Ukrainian president) Poroshenko’s plans to continue the military operation may just result in a humanitarian catastrophe,” he noted.

 

Poroshenko's plan

Earlier, Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko has approved the plan of a special raid in Donetsk and Luhansk.

According to Mykhailo Koval, Deputy Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine,  “the president has approved the detailed plan, which completely envisages all the stages of liberating our and from these people, who are destabilizing the situation there”.

The Security Council’s representative noted that amid the resuming of the active phase of the military operation in the east “in fact, the entire border (with Russia) was blocked from possibilities to bring heavy armory to the territory of Ukraine from abroad”.
