Head of Luhansk Oblast calls OSCE “absolutely helpless”


War in the Donbas

Gennady Moskal, the chairman of the Luhansk Oblast State Administration, stated he can no longer rely on the OSCE mission in an attempt to negotiate with leaders of the terrorists of the so-called “Luhansk People’s Republic.”

“The OSCE has not solved a single issue; that’s why we don’t contact them anymore and do not receive them. It’s an absolutely helpless organization,”- he said during the ceremony of accepting humanitarian aid from the Zhytomyr Oblast of Ukraine.

“The roofing materials and glass are needed here very much. They will likely go to the town of Trehizbenka, which is affected by shelling the most now. With regard to emergency medical care… A very seriously ill patient was taken from Stanitsa to Luhansk, because Bilovodsk is far. These savages (Russian terrorists) fired at the ambulance van, wounded the doctor, and stole the van. This is despite the fact that there was an agreement that the Luhansk emergency room will receive the patient – because from Stanitsa to Luhansk is only 12 kilometers. That is three times closer than Bilovodsk. As a result, the patient died,” – said Gennady Moskal.

Note that it is the second time the chairman of the Zhytomyr Oblast State Administration brings humanitarian aid from residents of his oblast to Severodonetsk, in particular roofing materials and a specialized ambulance van to replace the one hijacked by the terrorists.
