VIENNA, October 22 /TASS/. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) will spend €80 million to keep its monitoring mission in Ukraine in 2015. But it is still unknown where the funding will come from, Russia’s Ambassador to OSCE Andrey Kelin told journalists on Wednesday.
“The financing of observers’ work in Ukraine has been off-budget, and the figure of maintaining the mission next year is reaching €80 million. The OSCE does not have so much money,” Kelin said.
The Russian diplomat noted it was unclear what sources would be used to finance the monitors’ work. He added that Russia would give material support to the OSCE mission and provide it with machines, equipment and people.
