Information Resistance, a group of Ukrainian military experts, refused contacts with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, reported group coordinator Dmytro Tymchuk, who tied this decision to the fact that this organizations “frequently serves as a screen for the aggressive plans” of Russia.

“Because of recent events (meaning the OSCE observers’ report on the deaths of the people near school #63 in Donetsk as a result of shelling, like previous instances of OSCE cooperation with terrorists and activity in favor of the aggressor in the form of Russia) we, Information Resistance group, are forced to refuse contact with the representatives of your organization,” says the group’s response to the request for a meeting and expert consultations on part of OSCE representatives.

“We highly value the efforts and activities of OSCE representatives from European countries. However, as long as there are numerous Russian citizens in the OSCE, this organization, to our great lamentation, frequently serves as a screen for the aggressive plans of the Russian Federation against Ukraine,” add the Ukrainian experts.

On Saturday, November 8, the OSCE published its report on the November 5 shelling of school #63 in Donetsk, which killed two teenagers and injured several people. The report does not contain direct accusations of any of the conflicting sized, however on the grounds of this document, Russia’s permanent representative in the OSCE Andrey Kelin reached the conclusion that “the shot fired at the kindergarten (which is what Kelin himself called the building – ed.) was made from a direction and distance which definitely correspond with the location of Ukrainian troops near the airport and the locality of Pisky.”

Earlier bloggers on social networks, journalists, as well as the workers of the National Security and Defense Council, having analyzed video reports of Russian TV channels and photographs on separatist websites made on site, reached the conclusion that the shell or mine which killed two teenagers could have only been launched from the east or the northeast, so from deep within the territory occupied by the separatists.
