Eight Estonian Observers to Monitor Ukrainian Elections ({{commentsTotal}})


Estonia will send six short-term observers to the election observation mission of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) in various parts of Ukraine to observe the presidential elections, while two long-term observers have already been in the country since late March.

Long-term members of OSCE's electoral observation mission have been in the country since March 27 and will stay until June 3, the short-term observers will leave for their ten-day mission on May 20. The elections are scheduled for May 25, uudised.err.ee reported today.

The long-term observers will look at how the elections are organized and carried out, while the short-term observers mostly monitor elections on the day of the vote.

In addition, OSCE has a special monitoring mission in Ukraine, aiming to restore peace and stability in Ukraine. The six-months mission, launched on late March, includes four Estonians.
