VIENNA, September 8. /TASS/. Trilateral Contact Group in charge of settling the armed civil conflict in Eastern Ukraine hopes to reinforce the efforts of the OSCE’s Special Monitoring Mission (SMM), the special envoy of the organization’s chairman-in-office to Ukraine, Martin Sajdik told TASS on the eve of his trip to Moscow.
"The trilateral Contact Group has reached agreement to reinforce the SMM, since its functioning is an integral part of the Minsk accords," he said.
"From the OSCE’s point of view this means, in the first place, the importance of cutting short the impunity, that is, the importance of investigating a surge in the number of attacks on the monitors and to stop such actions effectively," Sajdik said.
"The problem of delegating more monitors to the SMM isn’t a decisive issue in terms of its reinforcement," he said. "Vice versa, we need a safe and uninterrupted access of the monitors already in Ukraine to the entire territory of the country, the way the Minsk accords stipulate it."
"That’s the problem we still need progress on," Sajdik said.
