Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe extended its Special Monitoring Mission in Ukraine for a year, till 31 March 2017, informs Radio Liberty.

The extension is approved by the Head of the organization, foreign minister of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier and OSCE Secretary General Lamberto Zannier.

According to Steinmeier currently 700 observers from 46 OSCE member states are involved in the mission. They note that peace in eastern Ukraine is very unstable and the mission still doesn’t have access to the entire conflict area.

Earlier DPR militants threatened to open fire at representatives of the Special Monitoring Mission near Kominternovo.
