Russia did not disclose information about its army to the OSCE

Russia has denied OSCE countries access to information about its armed forces under the 2011 Vienna Document. This was a response to Western countries’ policy towards Russia, RBC reports quoting the head of the Russian delegation at the talks in Vienna on military security Konstantin Gavrilov.

In January of this year, Gavrilov sent a letter to the representative of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Sinisa Bencun, who at that time was the chairman of the OSCE form. He said Russia would not provide information on its armed forces for this year, as required by Section I of the Vienna Document. This is explained by the fact that the Czech Republic has suspended its obligations to Russia and Ukraine’s refusal to participate in the annual exchange of military information.

According to Gavrilov, this is a visual effect of the “principle of reciprocity” in diplomacy. Russia could not allow information about its military to reach these states.
