Ukraine crisis: Europe’s security body to send monitors

International monitors will be sent to Ukraine, after Russian diplomats dropped their objections.

European security organisation, the OSCE, will send advance teams within 24 hours to areas including the violence-hit south-eastern areas.

But the 100-strong monitoring team is not expected to go to Crimea, which was taken over by Russia last month.

Russian leader Vladimir Putin signed a law formalising Crimea’s annexation on Friday, despite EU and US sanctions.

The 57-member Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe reached a deal on Friday evening.
