Moscow proposed to create demilitarized zones in the Donbass

14
The Permanent Representation of the Russian Federation at the OSCE proposed to consider the issue of creating demilitarized zones in Donbas and strengthening the functions of a special monitoring mission, reports RIA News Post Russian representative Alexander Lukashevich.



According to him, “the Ukrainian representatives confused everyone on the issue of the armed police mission of the OSCE in Ukraine, and as a result Russia offered the OSCE countries two options that could be agreed upon.”

“First of all, we are talking about creating demilitarized zones and strengthening the functions of the OSCE special monitoring mission in these zones to monitor the breeding of the parties and certify warehouses with withdrawn weapons. And here - in the context of strengthening the capacity for monitoring - an additional contingent is possible, not excluding the option of providing it with a standard weapons for personal safety, "
said the diplomat.

The second option is not related to the activities of a special monitoring mission.

“This is an operation in support of OSCE ODIHR electoral observation efforts, including an assessment of security conditions, if the parties agree on the modalities of elections in Donbas. We are talking about international experts who will have to ensure the work of the ODIHR monitors in the electoral territories together with the detachments of the people's militia of the LPR and DPR. It is clear that the Ukrainian side is categorically against this model, but options are being discussed, ”he explained.

Lukashevich stressed that "the OSCE is a civil organization that, by non-military means, should help resolve any conflict in its area of ​​responsibility, because the mandate does not provide for peace enforcement operations."

“Ideas about any armed component or engaging police functions in the conflict zone were met in Vienna very coolly, even by the Americans, not to mention the governing structures of the OSCE and the mission in Ukraine,” he said.

In turn, the representative of the Russian Federation to NATO, Alexander Grushko, said that Moscow was concerned about the transfer of army units trained by the alliance’s instructors to the Donbass.

“The aid programs that NATO implements in Ukraine pour water onto the mill of the“ war party ”and create for some forces in Kiev a sense of the possibility of military revenge. We are also concerned that the units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which were trained by instructors from NATO countries, are being transferred to the contact line in the Donbass ”,
he said.

“Moscow is also worried about something else: the political course that was chosen by NATO under the pretext of the Ukrainian crisis has now taken the form of military planning, and this is very dangerous. Military planning, which is directed against Russia, will inevitably generate a hostile policy. NATO will have to continually explain to the public why the alliance spends such resources to counter the threat from the east. Everyone understands that such a threat does not exist, ”Grushko added.

      such a zone would also suit me, but the point is that people cease to be accessible to killers, especially civilians.

        After all, there was already an agreement on the withdrawal of 15 km of weapons with a caliber of more than 100 mm. And what, the shelling of the DNI stopped? And the OSCE observers who saw the heavy weapons of the Armed Forces of Ukraine where it should not be, simply sent to ***. The same thing will happen again, because Kiev lies under the States, not under the EU.

      Well, something like Yes, to the west of Donetsk of the Krivoy Rog Republic within the borders before joining Ukraine.

      Official Moscow's proposals to equip OSCE observers with service weapons do not differ very much from Kiev's proposals for an armed OSCE mission, anyone understands that such a mission would not be armed with Tornadoes and Buratins.

    ... "The OSCE is a civic organization ... the mandate does not provide for a peace enforcement operation."

    Ah, there it is, how it turned! Krasava, there are no words. So they brought them to hell, beat everyone and say that you’re right (you don’t get used to it)!

    Has the OSCE greatly helped stop the war in the Donbass? And is someone else hoping for the OSCE? It seems to me that Moscow will not give anything good, people will continue to die

        He will not have any suggestions "for better" until he experiences everything the hard way! These zones are definitely needed. Sitting hundreds of kilometers away from events and telling you what to do and how to do it is a comfortable experience. Omitting the military issue, we can say that today the Donbass is literally suffocating without water! On the section from the border with Russia to the village. Sokolniki, the front line runs through the main source of drinking water in Donbass, r. Seversky Donets, and the rest up to Sloviansk is located in Ukraine. Water intake stations are either destroyed or disabled. Water to Donetsk, for cleaning and water supply, is supplied through a canal from a water intake near Slavyansk! If the situation with foodstuffs is more or less normal, then the situation with water supply, especially in summer, is critical.
        The creation of such zones will not only reduce peaceful shelling, but also establish normal water supply in the region and begin to restore production - most industrial enterprises cannot function in the absence of even technical water.

        And last, we must not forget that the special monitoring mission of the OSCE includes representatives of Russia - Russian officers. Another question is that their opinion, quite often, is ignored by Western and Ukrainian representatives!

          I mean, the real deal with the demilitarized zones is unlikely to reach, unfortunately. Just as it does not come to a real ceasefire and the implementation of the Minsk agreements. The OSCE has already been in the Donbass for how long, but the point of this is zero.
          Wouldn't it be better to carry out the Crimean scenario in LDNR in the spring of 2014, when the Armed Forces were not ready for war?

    NATO and the United States in particular do not understand verbiage. Until we deploy at least 1 full-fledged contingent at or near the borders of the United States, words will not reach them. As it will appear, for example, in Cuba, and better in Mexico, our air defense, then negotiations will begin.

    “The aid programs that NATO is implementing in Ukraine pour water on the mill of the“ war party ”and create a sense of the possibility of military revenge among some forces in Kiev. We are also concerned that the units of the armed forces of Ukraine, which were trained by instructors from NATO countries, are being transferred to the line of contact in Donbass. "

    Copulation. And the bald hedgehog understands that the Waltzmann regime will be saved for some time by the war in the SE. For this, combat units were prepared. Further, the American "curators" in the former Ukraine need to maintain tension on the western border of Russia, to justify the creation of NATO military bases on the Norway-Bulgaria arc and their "hawks" will do their best to continue the Ukrainian confrontation to the last Ukrainian. Former Ukraine is sick to the heart of Eurogarantam (Germany and France). They are worried about the collapse of this country "404" and the influx of "thugs" from it to their burgher lands, in addition to migrants from BV and North Africa, to the colic in their stomachs. And this collapse is not far off. But ambition and the transatlantic puppeteer do not allow the "guarantors" to enter the rational channel with Russia's position. Therefore (IMHO) the resumption of hostilities in the Donbass is inevitable, but when? (cry)
