The meeting took place on June 10. “Say no to the armed OSCE mission in Donbas”, called Denis Pushylin, the leader of so-called Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR). He added that bringing such mission to the combat area in eastern Ukraine would mean absolute and unconditional breach of Minsk agreements (Radio Liberty).
Previously, June 3, President Petro Poroshenko said the question of sending in the OSCE police mission in Donbas is likely to be solved this year. “We offered this option six months ago, and then, it was disapproved. Today, it’s a serious diplomatic success, because we’ve reached consensus on this issue in the frameworks of the Normandy format”, Poroshenko said.
Moscow and Russia-backed militants in eastern Ukraine strongly opposed against Ukraine’s idea to deploy the OSCE police mission in the combat area.
