OSCE Mission Under Fire in East Ukraine

The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission started working in Ukraine in March 21, 2014, after the organization received a request from the Ukrainian government. The mission’s aim is to monitor the events in the country, promoting dialogue between the opposing sides.

The armed conflict in Ukraine began in mid-April, when Kiev launched a military operation against independence supporters in the country's southeast.

In September, a ceasefire deal was agreed in Minsk at a meeting of the Contact Group on Ukraine, which included representatives from Ukraine, the OSCE and Russia. Despite the agreement, the Ukrainian army and independence supporters have repeatedly accused each other of violating the truce.
