Kremlin Human Rights Council ready to be OSCE partner in arranging talks in Ukraine
MOSCOW. May 5 (Interfax) - The Russian president's Human Rights Council has urged sides in the Ukrainian conflict to stop the armed confrontation and to begin a dialogue with the OSCE mediation.
"The Council calls on the Verkhovna Rada to hold a meticulous and transparent inquiry into the Odesa tragedy with the assistance of the OSCE, the UN and humanitarian and human rights organizations. The Council also urges the Verkhovna Rada to stop the use of troops, heavy vehicles and aircraft in the Donetsk and other regions and to launch peace talks with the opposition by forming structures of the negotiating process. Simultaneously, the Council calls on the armed opposition to cease fire and to begin negotiations with the OSCE mediation," says a statement posted on the Council website.
"The Council calls on intergovernmental structures, primarily, the OSCE and the UN, to do the utmost for arranging negotiations between the warring sides. The Council is ready to be a partner of the OSCE observer mission in this process, which is vital for Ukraine, Russia and Europe at large," the statement underscored.
The Council calls on the relevant Ukrainian authorities to give an access to the violence-ridden regions for foreign humanitarian missions, including the Russian ones, for rendering medical and psychological aid to the affected population.
In addition, the Council insists that lists of all persons detained, seized and arrested by both sides be published and such persons be immediately released under control of international observers.
