The Organization considers the disclosure of information about the deployment of the Ukrainian military in the presence of members of the Russian military “cooperation.”
Observers of the Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) of the OSCE, which met yesterday with representatives of Ukraine and Russia in the “Common Center of Control and Coordination,” disclosed information about the location of the Ukrainian military.
Thus, the Russian military learned the details of the location of heavy artillery and tanks of Ukrainian government forces near the village of Karlivka in Donetsk oblast.
In its report, the OSCE noted that they intend to continue to “cooperate with the Common Center.”
Also, the OSCE complained that as they went through Karlivka to the ATO area Ukrainian military detained the monitoring group demanding to show identification documents. The OSCE group was released after 2.5 hours.
The so-called “joint control and coordination center” includes representatives of the OSCE, the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Russian Armed Forces, which are known to provide both political and military support to the terrorists. Russia continues to deny the presence of its troops in Ukraine for several months, despite volumes of hard evidence.
The Ukrainian society lately showed signs of growing discontent with the inefficient work of the OSCE and the suspicion of its cooperation with the insurgents. Thus, the leader of Information Resistance think tank Dmytro Tymchuk accused the OSCE of cooperation with terrorists referencing a series of evidence.
On November 10 Adviser to the Minister of Defense Vasyl Budik said that 80% of the OSCE mission staff in Mariupol consists of Russian nationals.
