OSCE urged to stop military actions in Ukraine

After the death of a Swiss Red Cross worker in Donetsk, Ukraine, the OSCE Chairperson-in-office Didier Burkhalter called on the authorities and defense keepers ensuring a secure environment in south-eastern Ukraine that will allow humanitarian actors to carry out their work and deliver critical assistance to those most in need, the statement in organization’s website reads.

The statement also underlines that a “return to full-scale fighting could be catastrophic for Ukraine, the region and beyond.”

Ukraine has been engulfed in a violent internal conflict since mid-April, when Kiev began its military operation against independence supporters in the southeastern regions of the country. The conflict claimed the lives of more than 3,500 people, according to the UN.
