Andrei Zolotov. The process of reforming the Organization for security And cooperation in the European Union (OSCE), which began two years earlier And called " Helsinki 40 ", ended "upon failure" because of the decision of the Finnish authorities not to allow for a meeting in July, several members of the Russian parliamentary delegation, under the sanctions of the European Union, said in an interview Last news Russia's permanent representative to the OSCE Andrey Kelin.
However, the task of a revaluation of the existing system of European security, highlighted by the Ukraine crisis, remain And the future of the German chairmanship in the OSCE "extremely responsible" applies to this work, said Kelin.
"The fact that we were not involved, neither at the parliamentary level or at the level occupying the highest office diplomats in Helsinki anniversary celebrations in July this year, when the Finnish side have been denied visas to the Russian representatives, is in fact buried the Helsinki-40," which began two years earlier. Was formulated at a bad point in this case, quite stupid. And when gathered There And tried it without us Something to discuss concerning the upcoming European security, Then, of course, this is all savasa in empty conversations. Nothing new, this does not brought. Extremely bad actions of the Finnish leadership has put an end in this process, " said Kelin.
"But the need to work on issues of European security is preserved, And yet we come to other forms. But will have to start all over again. Rethink that one must create in many areas, And to Re-engage in serious efforts in each of these areas, " - said Russia's permanent representative.
According to k?lin, the Process of "Helsinki 40" was intended to prepare changes to the system of the OSCE And of the fundamental, And structural parts " by August 1, 2015, which marks 40 years of the signing of the Final act of the conference in Helsinki, marked the beginning of the Organization.
"currently we are in a transition period after upon failure over the meeting in Helsinki - trying to build Something else without us. And the main work will be, of course, on the future of the German presidency, which will begin from January 2016, " said Kelin.

in General, a system based in Helsinki, was a compromise between the desire first the USSR and then Russia to do organization with rigid rules, which would replace NATO And American efforts to make the "amorphous" structure, which would continue to criticize the Russian Federation for violation of arbitrarily chosen standards, most importantly in the field of human rights, said Kelin. However, this does not negate the value of the principles of the Helsinki Final act.
"The final act may never die, because to him, that is, were based structure of international relations in recent decades. Another thing - how it was done. Herein lies the main difficulty, " said Kelin.
