The UK is a long standing supporter of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) and its Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) in Ukraine. We are one of the largest contributors to the Mission’s budget, we have provided specialist training and support, and the size of the UK contingent in the Mission is second only to the US. We continue to support the French – and German – led diplomatic efforts, in conjunction with the OSCE, towards securing the implementation by all parties of the Minsk agreement, including provision of full and unhindered access in the conflict zone for the SMM.
