Rome [ENA] The OSCE works to prevent conflicts from arising and to facilitate lasting comprehensive political settlements of existing conflicts. It also promotes peacebuilding and post-conflict rehabilitation. To that end, it works with all relevant actors, including partnering international and regional organizations, such as the United Nations. The Organization’s main tools to address this cycle include its network of

field operations and the Conflict Prevention Centre(CPC). In Ukraine OSCE is present with the Special Monitoring Mission. Between the evenings of 22 and 23 December, OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine recorded fewer ceasefire violations in Donetsk region and more in Luhansk region, compared with the previous 24 hours.
