The extension of the mandate of the OSCE will help the peaceful resolution of the conflict situation in the Donbass, but it may Not like the Kiev, told reporters the Plenipotentiary representative of the DND in Minsk Denis Putilin.
"as long as the need to expand the mandate authorized the OSCE is my subjective opinion. I think that the Extension of the mandate may be one of the factors of intensification of resolving conflict peacefully, because that would enable the OSCE to fix violations and aloud to name the offender. Not sure, because it will appeal to the Ukrainian side ", - he said.
Also Pushilin said that the OSCE's Role in resolving the conflict can be called a key, but this is Not the only peacemaker. The role of the Russian Federation Not less important.
"The OSCE is the mediator. Their Role is the development of dialogue between the conflicting parties, and they expressed interest in the peaceful resolution of the situation. Of course, you can call Them the key, however, is Not the only peacemaker in this situation. The role of the Russian Federation in the peaceful settlement of the conflict, without doubt, More important. The support and advice that we have citizens of Russia, are of great importance to us", he said.
