Commentary of the First Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Donetsk People`s Republic Mikhail Mnukhin on the OSCE statements concerning Volnovakha tragedy.

Statements of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine on reasons of the tragedy near Volnovakha, especially in the part of technical analysis, we regard as too hasty and not quite consistent. Taking into account the fact, that the representatives of the OSCE are openly guided by the point of view of the Ukrainian authorities, such conclusions are very doubtful.

We fully support calls on starting the immediate complex investigation, but any investigatory actions should be held with the assistance of international observers and be objective.
