Denis Pushilin’s official statement on question about possibility of entering armed OSCE mission
Donbass, as before, is totally against any armed missions on the LPR and DPR territories. We will regard it as an intervention.
Even more so it isn’t understandable the presence of the armed missions representatives during holding elections: who are they going to shoot? The DPR Interior Ministry controls the rule of law in the Republic now and they will ensure the safety during elections for international observers, voters, members of the commission and for IDP, who also will have an opportunity to cast their vote at the place of residence.
I’m sure, that we were able to avoid casualties among the OSCE SMM during the conflict just because that mission is naked.
