“When asked if there are Russian associations there, then, referring to the information of our observers, I say that these associations are not there. But we see the presence of military equipment from the outside. In addition, we see a large presence of equipment and fuel, it also came from somewhere. In addition, there are foreign military personnel in the region, ” the OSCE Secretary General said.
