“A key element of the agreements is ensuring permanent monitoring by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) at the Ukrainian-Russian border along with the creation of a security zone in Ukrainian and Russian border regions,” he said. “We insist on establishing efficient control at the border between Ukraine and Russia on its both sides.”
He noted that as many as 59 members of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission were staying in Donetsk, Luhansk, Kramatorsk and Mariupol and the OSCE had “announced recruitment of more observers to the mission from among citizens of the OSCE member states“.
