"The OSCE may collapse;" Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland

The Yle TV station reported on Sunday evening that Finnish Foreign Minister Pekka Haavisto fears that the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) may collapse due to the unwillingness of Russia and Belarus to confirm Estonia's presidency in 2024.

In April, the Austrian newspaper "Die Presse" wrote that Austria is ready to propose its candidacy for the OSCE presidency in 2024 if Russia does not approve Estonia's candidacy due to a possible disagreement. The publication noted that Russia did not support Estonia's candidacy at the ministerial meeting held in Stockholm at the end of 2021.
