Speaking at the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights’ (ODIHR) Human Dimension Implementation Meeting in Poland, Alexander Lukashevich highlighted the OSCE’s “model of behavior” in relation to events in Ukraine.

“The OSCE has practically removed itself from impartial analysis in the country, where an internal armed conflict – the cause of which was a forced coup sponsored by Western countries – continues for the third year,” Lukashevich said.

 

The permanent representative noted that “mass human rights violations by Kiev, including the right to life, are in fact not adequately assessed by the organization and its specialized agencies.”

 

“Instead, the OSCE is transformed by Washington and Brussels into a platform for propaganda exercises. We cannot speak of objectivity in these circumstances,” Lukashevich stressed.
