The representatives of Ukraine in the Trilateral Contact Group have appealed to the OSCE with a request to hold an investigation of the messages on the possible stealing of the personal data of the OSCE SMM members as Iryna Gerashchenko reported on Facebook.
"Ukraine strongly stands against that Russians, who are present in the mission, spying instead of the observers work defined by a mandate. Ukraine demanded from the Russian representatives the answers on the involvement in the espionage and illegal activity to exclude such activity of the Russian special services in the diplomatic, security and humanitarian missions in the future," she claimed.
Also, the OSCE was reminded of the unfinished investigation of the murder of the SMM members from the US and Europe in Donbas. Also, Ukraine expects the investigation and punishment of the militant who attempted to rape the OSCE SMM observer.
As we reported the OSCE SMM in Ukraine expressed the concern that its internal documents, including the dossiers on the OSCE staff, were passed to the Russian side. It was said that they contained a lot of personal information about the OSCE workers, including the types of women they were attracted to, their financial situation and whether they were susceptible to alcohol.
Later it was specified that the OSCE SMM did not collect personal and financial information about its workers.
