Arming the observers of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) in the Donbass does not help to ensure their safety, said the deputy head of the SMM observer team, Arne Dalhaug.

“It is important to understand that arming observers will not help in the threat that we constantly face. For example, a mine, like the that exploded on Sunday”

Dalhaug said that any changes to the mandate of the OSCE will be made by the Permanent Council in Vienna.

“Any changes to our mandate will be made by the Permanent Council in Vienna. At the moment, there is no mention about the introduction of armed missions” – he said. 

Ed: Meanwhile, the Poroshenko regime suggested that armed missions is what should be done. Ukraine has rushed to seize the moment and extract maximum political gain from the death of an American. Kiev insists on the deployment of an international peacekeeping force to the Donbass.
