Ukraine insists on presence of observers of OSCE mission on the entire length of Ukrainian-Russian borders

According to UNIAN, spokesperson of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Eugene Perebyinis said this during briefing in Kyiv.

Ukraine continues insisting on expansion of presence of OSCE along all Ukrainian-Russian borders that is beyond limits of control of State Border Service of Ukraine and speaks for the need of placement of organization observers at additional checkpoints on Russian side.

Perebyinis informed that such offers had been presented to the states-participants of the OSCE on October 17 and during negotiations in Milan.

He informed that on October 22 OSCE Permanent Council would consider possibility to prolong the mandate of the mission. According to him, the majority of countries-member of OSCE supports the prolonging of the mandate on the entire length of Ukrainian-Russian border in Donetsk and Luhansk oblast.

‘Unfortunately, the position of Russia concerning this issue remains negative. In case Russian blocks this decision it will bear responsibility for the failure of key point of Minsk agreements’, – said Perebyinis.

He added that on October 24, 2014 the established by OSCE Permanent Council of presence of OSCE mission of Russian checkpoints ‘Gukovo’ and ‘Donetsk’ would end.

According to the spokesperson assumes that presence of OSCE observers at only 2 checkpoints has a low value in terms of effective monitoring of proper compliance with the regime of border protection by Russian border service.
