This was reported at a press conference in Kyiv by the head of OSCE / ODIHR Mission Tana de Zulueta, states UNIAN.
She has recalled that the mission works in the local elections in Ukraine on the invitation of the Ukrainian government on its own methodology. “One of the principles of the OSCE is that we are always working at the invitation of a member of the organization” – explained de Zulueta.
“We can not accept invitations to any entity that is not a member state of the OSCE, and which can not provide the necessary conditions (for the organization and conduct of elections – UNIAN)”, – said de Zulueta, responding to a question about whether OSCE observers can participate in monitoring the so-called elections in Donbas in those areas not controlled by Ukraine.
For your information, the head of the National Defense and Security Council Oleksandr Turchynov has said that Ukraine will never recognize the fake elections in the occupied Donbas.
