The issue of the provision of the OSCE SMM with the access for monitoring situation of Donbas twenty-four-hour was raised at the meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group on Ukraine in Minsk. The speaker of the former president of Ukraine and the representative of Ukraine in the Trilateral Contact Group Leonid Kuchma Darka Olifer reported this at Facebook.
‘The issue of the provision of the monitoring of the situation in Donbas by OSCE SMM in twenty-four-seven using the technic equipment is under consideration and then the separation of the forces will be made in the agreed zones’, she noted.
Also, Olifer added that the representatives of the separate territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions should not install the additional fortifications and mine fields during the separation of the forces. Also, the seepage of the troops, supply of new armament from Russia to the separate territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions cannot take place.
Moreover, the Ukrainian side urged the representatives of the separate territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions to unblock the access to the Ukrainian-Russian border for the OSCE SMM to perform the control of the movements of the troops and military units from Russia to these territories and to prevent the removal of the equipment from the Ukrainian enterprises in the temporary uncontrolled territory of Donbas.
‘The threats and violation towards the observers are revolting and unacceptable. We urged to accomplish the investigations and punish the guilty in the death of the OSCE SMM observer, who was the citizen of the US. It is necessary to bring to responsibility people who act aggressively towards SMM representatives, particularly those, who detained the workers of the OSCE SMM in Olenivka for more than 7.5 hours. We strongly condemn this improper and revolting fact’, she added.
Also, Olifer noted that the main issue of the meeting is the observance of the non-using of the fire from the separate territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
It was reported that the DPR militants detained the driver and truck of the OSCE SMM in Olenivka, Donetsk region for 7.5 hours.
