Ukraine invited OSCE observers to presidential elections in Ukraine, however, it won’t review applications from Russia. Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin claimed that on Facebook. 

‘A few days ago, I have directed a letter to Ingibjorg Solrun Gisladottir, Director of the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights of OSCE with an invitation to send an observation mission to the presidential elections in Ukraine. Among other quite standard things, I noted that the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine will not accept applications for registration of Russian observers,’ Klimkin claimed.
