OSCE Permanent Council has prolonged the mandate of the Organization’s monitoring mission at two checkpoints on the Ukraine-Russia state border. The Vienna-based OSCE secretariat told this Ukrinform news agency.

‘By the consensus decision of OSCE Permanent Council, 57 members agreed to extend the mandate of the OSCE observing mission at Gukovo and Donetsk checkpoints until January 31, 2018,’ the secretariat said as quoted by Ukrinform.  

The Organization added that the mandate of the mission, which consists of 22 members, remains unchanged. ‘Abiding by principles of impartial approach and transparency, the observers will monitor and report the situation on the two Russian checkpoints, as well as follow the movement along the border,’ the message reads.
