Humanitarian group coordinator for OSCE says her visit to LPR "useful"


The humanitarian subgroup coordinator for the OSCE Charlotte Relander said that her visit to the LPR was "useful".

She spoke to journalists during her visit to a DNA-laboratory that is to be launched soon.

"I wanted to see it with my own eyes, not just talk about at during the negotiations," Relander said when asked about the issue of missing persons and human remains identification.

"My visit was very useful, I came here, first and foremost, to meet people and see everything that is on our agenda, what we discuss," she added.

Earlier Relander visited the school No.4 in Zolotoye-5, whcih is regularly targeted by Ukrainian armed forces.

The OSCE representative also visited the Schastye and Pervomaisk crossing points that remain closed as Kiev declines any meaningful dialogue on their opening.

The Ukrainian government launched the so-called anti-terrorist operation against Donbass in April 2014. Conflict settlement relies on the Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements, signed on February 12, 2015 in the Belarussian capital by the Contact Group members and coordinated by the Normandy Four heads of states (Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine). The document provides for ceasefire and withdrawal of heavy weapons from the contact line. *t
