MOSCOW, February 13. /TASS/. The number of OSCE observers in eastern Ukraine will reach 350 by February 14, Russia’s ambassador to the Organization Andrey Kelin said in an interview with the Rossiya 24 television channel on Friday.
"Now, there are about 230, and by tomorrow the number will grow to 350," he said.
"The Organization is considering what the observers will require in order to support withdrawal of the heavy weapons and to monitor the ceasefire," he said.
Commenting the new conflict settlement agreement, Kelin said some items of the agreements reached in Minsk should have more details. According to the diplomat, the OSCE is drafting an action plan for implementation of the agreements.
"The work began immediately to implement most urgent provisions," he said. "Now, the monitoring mission is working on an action plan, and the Organization’s Secretariat is involved in the work, too."
Kelin also said the Minsk agreements on the Ukrainian conflict peaceful resolution will be stalled if Kiev refuses to grant amnesty and conduct constitutional reform.
