"In contrast to Kiev, Moscow is now making obvious efforts to resolve the situation in Donbass," the newspaper wrote.
In the future, observers will be able to carry "guns for self-defense," Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
This decision demonstrates "that the Russians do not plan to conduct any military operations" in the region, the article stated.
Prior to this, OSCE staff, watching the fragile truce between Donbass militias and the Ukrainian government forces, was not allowed to possess any weapons, the newspaper recalls.
Earlier, the head of the organization Lamberto Zannier also expressed his willingness to send an armed contingent of the OSCE to Ukraine if both sides give their consent. Kiev had repeatedly called for the deployment of additional military on its territory, and Moscow is ready to look for a compromise, Austrian newspaper Die Presse wrote.
"The Kremlin's demonstrating willingness to compromise regarding the deployment of armed OSCE observers," the newspaper wrote.
The OSCE observation mission has been deployed in Ukraine and tasked with monitoring the implementation of the Minsk deal provisions on settling the conflict between Kiev and the pro-independence militias in the country's southeast.
