MOSCOW, June 3. /TASS/. Situation in eastern Ukraine in the sphere of security has deteriorated sharply, Andrei Kelin, Russia's permanent representative at the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe said on Wednesday in an interview with the Rossiya'24 news channel.
"It's true that the situation in the sphere of security has deteriorated there recently," he said. "This puts brake to a certain degree on the operations of monitors since peaceful civilians are suffering from the falling shells and the rules of communications with them are more stringent than with the military."
