Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko says Ukraine has addressed the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) with a proposal to strengthen financial support for the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) to Ukraine.

"We have made a formal proposal and request to continue the mission's activities, as well as to boost opportunities, human resources, and finances to make the mission more effective than in previous years," Prystaiko said at a joint press conference in Kyiv with the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office, Albania's Prime Minister and Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs, Edi Rama.
