After the incident of misbehavior of one observer in Severodonetsk, Luhansk region, last week the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine took immediate action and on the same day suspended the employee, stated OSCE SMMU via Facebook.

"The SMM took the action as the said monitor's conduct, apparently involving alcohol, was a clear violation of the OSCE Code of Conduct. Unprofessional behaviour and violations of the code and the principle of impartiality cannot and will not be allowed under any circumstance," said in a statement.

Earlier, former head of Luhansk civil-military administration Hennadiy Moskal claimed that the OSCE observers "did not want" to go to the territory controlled by the pro-Russian militants. In his interview to Radio Liberty on June 2015, Moskal told that OSCE monitors "constantly sit at hotel's restaurant, from morning till night drinking beer and whisky".
