DONETSK, November 1. /TASS/. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) does not exercise its basic function in the conflict in Ukraine’s south-east joining actually one of the sides, Ewald Stadtler of the Austrian reform conservative party told reporters.
Stadtler has arrived in Donetsk as an international observer for monitoring the election in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic.
“I am confused and a bit angry that the OSCE will not monitor the election,” he said. “Control of this election is a crucial moment in the activity of this organization. But instead, the OSCE has joined one side of the conflict and is carrying the US-led anti-Russian policy.”
Alessandro Musolino, an Italian politician and an observer at the Donetsk election, said that the Western media are biased in their coverage of political processes in Ukraine’s east.
