Deputy Secretary Wendy R. Sherman spoke today with OSCE Secretary General Helga Schmid to discuss Russia’s destabilizing buildup of military forces on Ukraine’s borders.  They discussed ongoing efforts to urge Russia to pursue the path of diplomacy and de-escalation to end this crisis peacefully.  Deputy Secretary Sherman reiterated strong U.S. support for Poland’s proposal, as OSCE Chair, for a revitalized security dialogue at the OSCE.  The OSCE is an inclusive forum where all affected countries can discuss and address urgent and long-standing threats to European stability and security.
