“The head of state asked the OSCE representatives to immediately step up the Special Monitoring Mission’s efforts. He called for increasing the number of observers to 1,500,” the presidential press service said.
At the same time, Poroshenko said at least 29 drones were indispensable for observers to monitor the areas of southeastern Ukraine.
The delivery of drones for the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission will be over on October 13, Poroshenko said.
He said the first two drones had been delivered to Ukraine.
Poroshenko also invited OSCE representatives to take part in monitoring the parliamentary elections scheduled for October 26.
