Ukrainian side believes that security of the electoral process in the Donbas is possible when armed OSCE mission would be deployed in the region.
We will continue to discuss the police mission deployment in Donbas in the Normandy format and in Vienna to clearly delineated competences and mandate of such a mission. No talks without such a mission about proper security and fair elections in Donbas, – Konstantin Eliseyev, Deputy Head of Presidential Administration said on Friday briefing.
He stressed that the Ukrainian side insists on the necessity of placing such a mission in the context of security before, during and after the local elections in Donbas. The issue, according to Eliseev, was discussed at the meeting of Heads of State Advisers in “Norman format”.
