The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe extends the observation mission to Ukraine – Prensa Latina

On this day, OSCE Head of duty and Swedish Chancellor Anne Linde presented the decision to the OSCE Permanent Council to extend the aforementioned mission, deployed in the rebel region of Donbas, where the conflict erupted in 2014.

I welcome the arrival of the consensus of the 57 members to confirm the budget and extend the OSCE mission in Ukraine until March 31, 2022, Lindi stressed, citing Capital TV.

The observers of the organization, created in 1975 and based in this city, must ensure compliance with the ceasefire, agreed upon after the agreements reached in September 2014 and February 2015, in Minsk, to end the internal conflict.

For the Swedish head of foreign relations, the OSCE mission in Ukraine is of critical importance in the organization’s efforts, which aim to end the fighting by monitoring the situation.

In February 2014, the right-wing, with support from paramilitary groups, carried out a coup in Kiev, after several months of violent protests that forced then-President Viktor Yanukovych to leave power.

In April of that year, the forces that came to power after the coup riots launched a punitive operation against the rebel population, mostly Russian-speaking, in the republics of Donetsk and Lugansk, with more than 10,000 dead.

One thousand observers from the aforementioned organization are now monitoring the end of hostilities in Donbas, and among their functions is to receive, confirm or reveal violations of the arrangement to avoid armed clashes.
