MOSCOW, June 10. /TASS/. More than 60,000 citizens of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic took to the streets in downtown Donetsk on Friday to protest against plans to arm members of the OSCE mission in Donbass, the Donetsk News Agency reported.
The participants are carrying posters in English, German and French with calls on the international community "not to allow the deployment of an armed mission of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe," the report says.
The demonstrators have gathered on the central square of Donetsk where the republic’s leader Alexander Zakharchenko is expected to address the crowd. Tents have been set up where citizens can sign a petition to the United Nations Security Council against violations of the Minsk peace agreements by Kiev.
