OSCE To Invite Russia To Take Part In Short-Term Observer Mission At Ukrainian Election
The Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) will soon send a request to 56 OSCE member states, including Russia, to participate in a short-term monitoring mission at the upcoming presidential election in Ukraine, ODIHR spokesman Thomas Rymer told Sputnik on Monday
According to Rymer, a total of 750 monitors from 56 countries will be requested in the near future.
Rymer added, though, that it would still be up to the Ukrainian authorities to accredit these observers or not.
The spokesperson clarified that the observer mission will be set up a week before the elections in order to conduct a briefing and send monitors to various regions of the country for observation.
