DONETSK, eastern Ukraine, January 13 /TASS/. Representatives of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) on Tuesday held talks to discuss the current situation in Donbas, Denis Pushilin, a DPR representative in the Contact Group for Ukraine, told the Donetsk news agency.
“The OSCE and DPR representatives held talks today. The OSCE is concerned with the situation in Donbas. Urgent measures to cease the fire will be taken. Without that, the situation will be deadlocked and it will be impossible to conduct further talks either in Minsk or in the Normandy Quartet format,” Pushilin, who is also the deputy chairman of the DPR People’s Council, said.
The representative of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic said that the OSCE monitoring mission is permanently present in the DPR’s territory and has a chance to operate with facts.
“They can hear the shelling and by the nature of damage caused to the infrastructure they can judge from where the shells are coming and draw conclusions,” Pushilin added.
