Luhansk region militants say they have released OSCE group
The Luhansk region's militants have released four Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe employees and have pledged not to obstruct their further work, the leader of the "People's Front" of the Luhansk region, Oleksiy Chmilenko, told Interfax.
"Indeed, a group of four OSCE representatives was detained yesterday. Afterwards, they were taken to Luhansk, where their documents were examined. When it was confirmed that they are actually representatives of this international organization and are not involved in organizing any provocations, a decision was made to warn them against traveling unaccompanied and without appropriate documents any further," he said.
Militants have already let the OSCE group go and are not obstructing their work in any way, Chmilenko said.
"On the contrary, our military forces have even shown to them what they wanted to see. We are accompanying them everywhere and helping them," he added.
