Alexander Hug, Deputy Chief of OSCE to Ukraine called ‘aggressive and orchestrated' the anti-OSCE protest staged in Russian proxies’ stronghold Donetsk on Thursday morning, claiming that it poses a security concern for his mission.

"This morning up to three hundred civilian protesters have assembled at once in front of our hotel in Donetsk city… In an organized manner orchestrated in front of our hotel the protesters later entered rather aggressively," said Hug, according to Ukraine Today.

Members of the OSCE special monitoring mission were unable to calm the crowd.

"Thirty of these cars were vandalized sprayed upon in the backyard of the hotel. The OSCE special monitoring mission is concerned about this situation and calls upon those in effective control to provide sufficient security for the observers in Donetsk city," said Hug.
