The OSCE refuted allegations by a number of Russian media that the observers are involved in the supply of ammunition for the Ukraine’s Armed Forces.
- The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission operates under the principle of transparency and impartiality. The OSCE SMM does not, and never has, provided help to the sides to the conflict, be it material aid, reconnaissance or support in gaining ground, the OSCE reported on Facebook.
The OSCE SMM stressed it is mandated to monitor and report on the situation objectively, and to facilitate mutual dialogue.
According to the statement, the OSCE SMM calls on the media to refrain from unsubstantiated allegations.
