MOSCOW, May 5. /TASS/. The envoy of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic to the Contact Group, Denis Pushilin, called on Tuesday for expanding the OSCE mission mandate in Donbas.
"We assess the work of the OSCE as satisfactory, although there are some comments, but nevertheless we understand how difficult their work is," Pushilin said in an interview with Rossiya-24 TV channel.
"The problem is in their limited mandate - they cannot accuse the violators and they provide only general information. We insist on expanding their mandate," Pushilin stressed.
The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) to Ukraine was deployed in late March 2014 and its mandate has been extended until March 31, 2016. The mission’s tasks are to observe and report in an objective way on the situation in Ukraine and facilitate dialogue among the conflicting parties.
