VIENNA, May 9. /TASS/. OSCE Chairperson-in-Office and Serbia’s Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic has called on all sides in the Ukraine conflict to hold peaceful commemoration events marking the end of the Second World War.
"Ahead of this important anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe, which will be marked across the OSCE area, I would like to call on all sides to commemorate the occasion through peaceful events, which also respect a comprehensive ceasefire and contribute to achieving a sustainable and lasting peace in Ukraine," Dacic said in a statement published by the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).
Dacic urged the parties to the conflict to observe a ceasefire fully and to refrain from showcasing military hardware at the events.
"I urge all sides to support the full implementation of the Minsk Agreements by exercising maximum restraint and refraining from displaying heavy weapons during the commemoration events. The anniversary of Victory Day is the right time to send a message of peace," he said.
