Europe tells the OSCE observers when to ignore shelling in Donbas

Summary of Disinformation

The OSCE observers are not acting independently. They receive instructions from Western Europe. If Western Europe tells them: “Guys, you have not seen anything, the birds are singing, no one is shooting,” they will say: “We have not seen anything, birds are singing, we are not going anywhere!”

 

 

Disproof

No evidence given. The Special monitoring mission of unarmed civilian observers to Ukraine was deployed following a request to the OSCE by Ukraine’s government and was agreed by all 57 OSCE’s participating States, Russia included. http://www.osce.org/ukraine-smm/116879?download=true.
