The European Union has committed €1.2 million for the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) mine activities in Ukraine.
This was announced by the EU High Representative Josep Borrell at the plenary session of the OSCE Ministerial Council that takes place in Poland on 1-2 December.
Borrell also said that Russia, by unleashing war in Europe, had violated not only specific OSCE commitments, but also the basic principles on which European security is built.
“Apart from its brutal attack on Ukraine and its people, Russia continued destabilising the Georgian regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, and the Transnistrian region of the Republic of Moldova and severely deteriorating the security situation in the whole OSCE area,” added Borrell.
