Participation of staffs of Ukrainian special services in missions of international organizations in Donbass contradicts their mandates. Donetsk recommends that the United Nations and the OSCE be selective in recruitment. This was announced today at the meeting of the Contact Group in Minsk by Denis Pushilin, plenipotentiary representative of the Donetsk People’s Republic.
“Using international organizations (UN, OSCE) as a smokescreen, SSU leadership tries to get the agents, who participated in the so-called “ATO” in Donbass, into the above-mentioned structures”.
Pushilin recalled that on Saturday, September 17, the exchange of POWs took place. DPR handed over SSU Colonel Yuri Suprun, allegedly a member of the UN mission in Ukraine, to the Ukrainian side. Indeed, the man collected intelligence information.
“We would like to draw the attention of such a respected international organization as the United Nations to recruitment procedure for its field offices. Such dishonest employees use the name of international organizations to commit crimes and violate the norms of international law, which subsequently affects the reputation of these organizations, and contradicts to their mandates. We express the hope and confidence that thorough measures will be undertaken to avoid such incidents in the future,” Pusilin said in this regard.
