Kuchma would like the presence of the OSCE mission in Crimea

The second President of Ukraine, which is currently its representative in the Trilateral contact group on the settlement of the “Donbass crisis,” insists on the presence of the special monitoring mission of the OSCE not only in the East of Ukraine and on the Crimean Peninsula. The argument of Leonid Kuchma, from the point of view of Kiev, is simple: Crimea is de “remains Ukrainian territory”.

A resonant statement of the former Ukrainian leader was made during the “Yalta European strategy” – international forum, which is annually financed by Kuchma’s son-in-law, billionaire Viktor Pinchuk.

Leonid Kuchma reminded that Ukraine is constantly “raises the question” of the admission of SMM OSCE in all regions, including “temporarily uncontrollable”. As the Organization for security and cooperation in Europe adopted a decision on the free movement of the Special monitoring mission throughout Ukraine without any restrictions, the SMM should be allowed to work in the Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol. However, the authorities of the Russian Federation categorically against such an approach and have never been willing to explain the reasons of rejection, complains Mr. Kuchma.

The territorial jurisdiction of the Russian Crimea Ukrainian politician raised after a series of questions from the participants of the “Yalta European strategy” with regards to “the ongoing repression against the Crimean Tatars” and Pro-Ukrainian-minded residents of the Peninsula.
