Ukraine’s acting foreign minister Andrii Deshchytsia accused Russia of blocking efforts to send independent observers to his country despite widespread support for such measures. Speaking at the council of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) on Thursday, March 20, he cited three draft resolutions for monitors that have been blocked by Russia. He said: “These Russian actions have all the signs of a deliberate tactic to undermine at all costs the efforts of OSCE community to send independent monitors to Ukraine to make an objective assessment of the situation on the ground.” Commenting on Crimea he said: “In recent weeks we are witnessing the most flagrant violation of international law in the OSCE region since the times of World War Two.” Credit: OSCE less
