Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) considers sending an armed police mission to monitor any future elections in occupied territories of east Ukraine, OSCE Secretary General Lamberto Zannier informed in an interview to Associated Press, reports TASS.

According to Zannier, with the agreement of all involved parties, OSCE may deploy hundreds of the mission’s armed policemen to maintain law and order in the east of Ukraine during local elections in occupied territories.

No considerable progress was reached during Ukraine peace talks in Minsk on May 18, where the parties mainly focused on political issues, in particular, local elections in occupied Donbas. However, safety issues in eastern Ukraine have not yet been settled.
