Russia backs bigger OSCE mission in Ukraine
Russia said on Saturday it wanted to see a bigger European monitoring mission in Ukraine to help oversee withdrawal of mortars, tanks and light artillery under recent agreements. Russia's backing for an expanded Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) mission may be a further sign it wanted to see the peace process succeed, an outcome that could eventually lead to Western sanctions against Russia being eased. "Russia is in favor of increasing the number of observers to the maximum permitted 1000," a Russian Foreign Ministry statement said, adding that the mission presently has 543 staff.
