Due to the deterioration of the Ukrainian-Russian crisis around the sea of Azov and the Kerch Strait, Minister of foreign Affairs of Germany Heiko Maas (Heiko Maas) has proposed to extend the monitoring mission of the Organization for security and cooperation in Europe (OSCE) on the Azov sea.
He stated this on Thursday, December 6, on the sidelines of the meeting of foreign Ministers of the OSCE countries in Milan, according to DW.

According to Maas, this will be a topic of discussion during a meeting between representatives of Ukraine and Russia with the mediation of Germany and France, to be held on Tuesday, December 11, in Berlin. Informed about the meeting in this format was agreed by German Chancellor Angela Merkel (Angela Merkel) and the President of Russia Vladimir Putin during the G20 summit in Buenos Aires. However, later the press Secretary of Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that the conflict between Moscow and Kiev around the Kerch Strait cannot be a subject of the Norman format.
As noted, before that, the German foreign Minister met with the Ministers of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin and Russia Sergey Lavrov to discuss proposal negotiations.
“I think that from Ukrainian side it was regarded as rational. From the Russian side, on the contrary, very, very skeptical,” said Maas.
