 Ukraine Should Insist on Russia’s Exclusion from the OSCE Mission - Tymchuk

The Ukrainian party must attain the OSCE monitoring mission format review and the expulsion of Russia from there as a concerned party.

Coordinator of the Information Resistance project Dmytro Tymchuk said this on Channel 5, Censor.NET reports citing UNIAN.

"If we are talking about the OSCE, we should ask the question of what are the Russian Federation representatives doing there? They occupy key positions there being the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs natives. The cross-border issues department is headed by Lavrov's protégé. What else could be said? What fairness of mission's observations are we talking about?" he said.

According to him, the situation can be called a stalemate.

"The fact is that we are in a stalemate situation. We require the UN Security Council mandate to involve the UN where Russia has the right of veto. I think that it is possible to change the OSCE format somehow. That is to insist that the interested party, and Russia is the interested party, should not participate in these missions," Tymchuk said.

Earlier, there were multiple reports about the militants using cars and documents with the OSCE emblems.
