VIENNA, March 21 (RIA Novosti) – After days of intense debates, the permanent council of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe reached an agreement on Friday evening to send a monitoring mission to Ukraine.

A resolution on the mission’s six-month mandate was approved by all 57 OSCE member states.

The mission’s headquarters will be in the capital Kiev. First observer teams are to arrive within the next 24 hours.

Observers will visit nine cities: Dnepropetrovsk in central Ukraine, Donetsk, Lugansk and Kharkiv in the east, Kherson and Odessa in the south, Lviv, Chernivtsi and Ivano-Frankivsk in the west.

Initially, the mission will comprise 100 observers, but the number may further be enlarged to 500. It is yet unknown who will head the mission, but the OSCE chairman, Didier Burkhalter of Switzerland, is to decide on the matter soon.

The monitoring mission will not visit Crimea, formerly an autonomous republic within Ukraine which reunification with Russia was sealed earlier on Friday.

A previous OSCE mission, invited by the central government in Kiev, has tried to enter Crimea at least three times in early March, but was denied entry. Warning shots were fired on one occasion.

    na Ruskim zemljama zapadnjaci postavljaju vojnom silom svoje marionete, prijete Rusiji na njenim povijesnim zemljama, šikaniraju sve koji se nisu prodali zapadu, Rusijo do kada?
    zapad je izvršio napad na Rusko Ukrajinsko (to je jedno te isto Slavensko Sovjetsko Carsko) tlo,
    kakvi promatrači, već smo vidjeli te načine lomljenja otpora, zapad kombinira vojni udar i malo politike, promatrača, sankcija, razvijaju metode takvog kombiniranog ratovanja stolječima, van iz Ukrajine sa zapadnim promatraćima, kada se odbace te pravila igre onda je potpuno druga prića,
    Rusijo ne popuštaj, oružano su oteli vlast i samo tako mogu biti uklonjeni,
    nacisti su u drugom svjetskom ratu držali Ukrajinu godinama, Crvena Armija ih je otjerala, ne pregovaraći,
    Rusijo ne daj zapadu ni pedlja Ukrajinskog tla, nacisti sa zapada Ukrajine su beznačajni u odnosu na 190 miljonsku Slavensku večinu u Istočnim Slavenskim zemljama, ne mogu oni dovoditi u pitanje opstojnost Slavenske civilizacije, a to upravo sada rade, Eu, Nato, to je jedno te isto, antiruski vojni stroj, jedina svrha njihovog postojanja je uništiti Rusiju a time i slobodnog čovjeka kao takvog,
    Rusijo spremi oružje, sve drugo je put u robstvo, da je zapad htio prijatelje ne bi napravio ovo što je napravio u Ukrajini,
    svi koji vrše razne analize objektivno rade u korist neprijatelja, kakve veze sada ima raspoloženje naroda, narod prihvaća pobjednike zbog samoodržanja, zapad to dobro zna zato je napravio puč u Kijevu, sada mirno čeka da vrijeme učini ostalo, sjetite se Baltičkih državica, zar če Rusija čekati da i Ukrajini naprave isto,
    Mobilizacija svega što diše Slavenski a ne analize,
    Rusijo spasi Ukrajinu, to će donjeti slobodu svima, od rata gore je biti rob i ponižen,
    svijet u kome je Rusija na koljenima je nezamisliv, Rusijo ustani,
    ili budimo slobodni ili neka nema ni nas ni osvajaća
