Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko expects the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) to make a decision in the near future on setting up and deploying an armed police mission in Donbas, Interfax-Ukraine reports.

“As a result of my negotiations, I expect in the near future the deployment of a new OSCE armed police mission to control the ceasefire agreements, the pullout of weapons, and the withdrawal of Russian troops from the occupied territory, and ensure the efficient control of the Ukrainian-Russian border, so as to prevent new regular troops and weapons from entering Ukrainian territory,” Poroshenko said at a meeting with top officials from the Zaporizhia regional administration on Friday.
