OSCE: Peace in Donbas can become reality

Principle Deputy Chief Monitor of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine Alexander Hug believes that peace in Donbas can become a reality.

Such an opinion was expressed at a briefing in Kyiv, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Now we have an opportunity to put an end to the conflict. I have a firm hope that this is real for the first time for such a long time. Lasting and sustainable ceasefire can be achieved if the parties withdraw all illegal weapons and troops from the security zone," Hug said.

Trust is needed for the removal of weapons and troops, the OSCE SMM representative said, and "the last week showed that a certain level of trust had been achieved." He noted that the OSCE was ready to provide all possible support, but the parties should give the SMM an unfettered access by signing a relevant agreement.
