    Russia should play an active role in finding peaceful solutions to crises in Europe using mechanisms of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), its chairperson-in-office told Sputnik.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Austria’s Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz, whose country assumed this year's rotating chairmanship of the regional security organization said the OSCE needed Russia to support its endeavors.

    "Russia can play a decisive role in fostering constructive dialogue to peacefully resolve the current crises. Russia can help ensure the OSCE’s ability to deal with the challenges facing the participating States by supporting measures to give it sufficient resources to fulfill its wide-ranging mandate," he said.
