KIEV, September 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko on Saturday allowed monitors from the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) to use drones in the east of the country.
The issue was raised in a telephone conversation between Poroshenko and Swiss President and OSCE Chairperson-in-Office Didier Burkhalter, the presidential press service said.
Poroshenko and Burkhalter discussed the work of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission in Ukraine and the need to monitor the ceasefire in eastern regions of the country.
They agreed to increase the number of monitors and provide them with better technical means for monitoring and verification.
The OSCE Secretariat told ITAR-TASS earlier that the drones would be used to monitor the Ukrainian-Russian border and compliance with the ceasefire agreement reached in Minsk on September 5.
The drones will be supplied by the Austrian company Schiebel. It will provide two S-100 vertical take-off and landing drone systems, a control station, six operators, and three mechanics.
