MOSCOW, April 24. /TASS/. The unlawful use of the OSCE identification signs in Ukraine is unacceptable and poses a threat to the organization’s monitors, Russia’s envoy to the OSCE Andrey Kelin told a meeting of the organization’s Permanent Council.
"We draw attention to the inadmissibility of unlawful use of the OSCE markings," he said. "Photos of white cars with the Ukrainian number plates and the Special Monitoring Mission logo, which don’t belong to the mission, have appeared on the web."
According to the diplomat, the illegal use of OSCE identification signs poses an immediate threat to the security of OSCE monitors. "We demand that Ukraine’s law enforcement agencies take immediate action to identify and punish the provocateurs, whoever is behind them," Kelin said.
Meanwhile, spokesman for the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine Michael Bociurkiw said that a Lexus car bearing the OSCE markings had been spotted in Dnepropetrovsk. Bociurkiw noted that the OSCE didn’t have Lexus cars. This is inadmissible, he added.
