VIENNA, January 20 /TASS/. The Ukraine army is using forbidden means and methods of warfare in a bid to regain control over the Donetsk airport, Andrey Kelin, Russia’s Ambassador to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), told journalists on Tuesday.
“The military are trying to regain their positions by using forbidden means and methods of warfare such as air bombardments and heavy bombardments of the city’s central districts causing human casualties and destroying the infrastructure,” Kelin said.
The OSCE member countries formulated and adopted a joint declaration urging to stop military hostilities in eastern Ukraine at a special meeting of the OSCE Permanent Council on Tuesday for the first time since the conflict broke out, Kelin told journalists on Tuesday.
“It is important that for the first time (the OSCE countries) adopted a short joint statement urging to implement the Minsk agreements and expressing support for the Contact Group and the ‘Normandy format’,” Kelin said.
