MOSCOW, August 6. /TASS/. Several hundred people are rallying outside the headquarters of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in Donetsk, the Donetsk news agency reports.
The protesters express their dissatisfaction with the work of international observers in the Donbas region, which they believe is biased. The participants in the rally are holding posters saying, "Your silence is killing children." The demonstrators left at the doors of the mission’s central office the toys covered in red paint symbolizing the Donbas children who had died at the hands of the Ukrainian military.
The OSCE representatives came out to talk to the protesters but refrained from making comments.
"If the OSCE monitoring was impartial, peace would have long come to the Donbas region. The most amazing thing is that OSCE staff don’t tell people anything. Their answers to our complaints boil down to the fact that they would draw up reports," a participant in the rally, teacher of a Donetsk school Svetlana Titova told the news agency.
Another protester said that he had come from Gorlovka. "Our city is daily destroyed by the Ukrainian army, and you (OSCE) are keeping silent. Shame on you!" he shouted after which the observers went away. And the demonstrators began chanting, "Shame on the OSCE!"
"This international mission called painting their cars vandalism, I see that their vehicles have long been washed, by contrast with their conscience," the Donetsk news agency quotes one of the protesters as saying.
The previous rally outside the OSCE headquarters in Donetsk demanding an end to Kiev’s aggression was held on July 23.
