DONETSK, September 07,/ITAR-TASS/. The leaders of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR) in the east of Ukraine on Sunday urged the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) to ensure control over the observance of the ceasefire regime in the southeast of Ukraine.
“We hope OSCE will ensure unbiased international control over the ceasefire regime observance, as well as objective monitoring of the situation in Ukraine”, says the document signed by DPR Prime Minister Aleksandr Zakharchenko and LPR head Igor Plotnitsky.
“We consider it very important to stop the bloodshed and prevent humanitarian disaster in the south-eastern regions,” Zakharchenko and Plotnitsky said in a joint statement. “In this connection we hope for the earliest approval of the proposed by DPR and LPR first priority measures aimed at the Minsk agreements’ implementation.”
After the Contact Group on Ukraine meeting in Minsk on September 5, Zakharchenko and Plotnitsky passed proposals on the implementation of the reached agreements to the OSCE special envoy for Ukrainian settlement Heidi Tagliavini.
