OSCE Chairman-in-Office and Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz welcomed the talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel to strengthen the protection of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) in Ukraine. The diplomat wrote this on his Twitter page.

“Initiatives, including by the UN, to increase security of SMM monitors are crucial,” Kurz noted.

“Welcome talks between Chancellor Merkel and President Putin on improving safety of OSCE SMM in Ukraine,” he also wrote.


Putin proposed to German Chancellor Angela Merkel to deploy UN peacekeepers not only along the line of demarcation in the Donbas, but also "in other places where the OSCE SMM conducts its inspections."

As it was reported earlier Putin agreed to deploy UN peacekeepers not only along contact line. Russia concedes to deploy peacekeepers where the SMM OSCE is operating.

Don't expect too much from Ribbentrop-Germany: President Barack Obama and his advisors spent at least a week, and as much as three weeks, planning to send up to 9,000 combat troops into eastern Ukraine, on the border with Russia, following the shoot-down of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 two years ago. The scheme, which was to have involved Dutch and Australian army units, with German ground and US air support, plus NATO direction. The military plan, according to James Brown, now head of research at the US Studies Centre of the University of Sydney, “would have consumed the bulk of the Australian Army.” According to Dutch sources, the military plan of attack was aborted when "Ribbentrop" Germany refused to participate directly, or allow its bases and airspace to be used.
