OSCE PA Vice-President Margareta Cederfelt said this at the 19th winter meeting of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly in Vienna on February 21, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“Russian aggression against Ukraine has been lasting for five years, five long years. This issue is a constant subject of our discussion,” the Swedish MP said at the beginning of her speech.
She noted that the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission constantly reports on ceasefire violations and restrictions on the Mission's freedom of movement. "All of these things and the previous violence are to some extent connected with Russia," Cederfelt said.
The OSCE PA Vice-President noted that Russia is a huge country with great influence, but it also bears great responsibility. “The time has come for Russia to begin to implement the Minsk agreements, which it signed five years ago and does not fulfill. And it is time for Russia to begin to respect the territorial integrity of Ukraine,” Cederfelt stressed.
