OSCE Walk Out on Donbas Talks Because of Ukrainian Threats

Summary of Disinformation

The OSCE coordinator left the Trilateral Contact Group peace talks on Ukrainian Donbas held in Minsk because of Ukrainian threats and insults.

Disproof

No evidence given. The press statement issued by the OSCE after the May 16 talks makes absolutely no mention of any walkout by any OSCE personnel. The statement reasserts the OSCE’s commitment to continued talks aimed at easing the hardships of civilians living close to the demarcation line and in the occupied territories.

Furthermore, responding to StopFake’s inquiry about Nikonorova’s claims, Ukraine’s representative at the Minsk talks, and former Ukrainian ambassador to the US Oleksander Motsyk dismissed Nikonorova’s claims as completely false. “The OSCE moderator left the talks when they were finished, this claim is a complete fake” Motsyk, who was present at the negotiations, said.
