    There is no certainty concerning the OSCE special police mission deployment to eastern Ukraine, a source from the German Foreign Ministry said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — There is no clarity regarding the deployment of a Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) special police mission to eastern Ukraine, a source from the German Foreign Ministry said Tuesday.

    On Monday, the leaders of Russia, France, Germany and Ukraine held talks and confirmed their commitment to implementing the Minsk agreements on settling the crisis in eastern Ukraine. Later, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko's press service said that the sides supported deploying an OSCE police mission to eastern Ukraine's Donbas region.

    "There is no clarity whether such a mission will be sent," the source from the ministry told RIA Novosti.

    The source also did not confirm whether the issue was discussed during Monday's talks, adding that the German position on the matter is to support the OSCE in finding ways of restoring peace in eastern Ukraine.
