OSCE extends observer mission’s mandate on Ukraine-Russia border

The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) extended the mandate of its observer mission at the Gukovo and Donetsk checkpoints on the Ukraine-Russia border for another three months.

Ukrinform learnt this from the OSCE Secretariat in Vienna.

"In a consensus decision today by the OSCE Permanent Council, the 57 participating States agreed to extend the mandate of the OSCE Observer Mission at the Russian Checkpoints Gukovo and Donetsk by three months to 31 January 2018,” the statement reads.

The mandate of the Mission, which is comprised of 22 staff, remains unchanged.

 Operating under the principles of impartiality and transparency, the observers will monitor and report on the situation at the two Russian checkpoints, as well as on the movements across the border.

As a reminder, the Mission has been on the ground since 29 July 2014.
