Berlin says Russia wrong to say OSCE accepts 'new realities'
24 Mar 2014 5:51 PM
The German government rejected Russia's assertion that the exclusion of Crimea in an OSCE mission to Ukraine was a tacit admission by the pan-European security group that the peninsula now belonged to Russia. Russia agreed on Friday with the 56 other members of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) to send a six-month monitoring mission to Ukraine, but said it had no mandate in the Black Sea peninsula annexed by Moscow. The Russian foreign ministry said on its website on Saturday that the OSCE mission's mandate "reflects the new political and legal realities and does not apply to the Crimea and Sevastopol, which became part of Russia".
