The ongoing Donbass conflict (Ukraine-Russia war) commenced in 2014 when the pro-West President took over power from the pro-Russia President. The crisis is because of the power struggle of Ukraine’s factions. The factions have aligned to different factions; one has aligned to Russia while the other have aligned to the European Union. Ukraine had always been one of the biggest contributors to the Soviet Union Economy. The crisis between the factions became more intense when the special forces of Russia occupied the Crimean Peninsula in Ukraine (Jones & Sam. ). The special forces of Russia claimed that they were protecting their port access to the Black Sea. The sole reason for doing this was because Ukraine had entered into a deal with the USA to develop the natural gas reserves of Crimea with companies of the USA for two years. If this was accomplished then Russia was going to lose one of its biggest customers; therefore this is what has increased the conflict being observed in Donbass. OSCE came in to help stop this conflict which was consuming Ukraine but has not done its best to bring peace in the country because of a number of reasons. The paper provides a detailed explanation of why OSCE is not doing well in Donbass conflict (Ukraine-Russia war).

However much the trials that OSCE makes to end the war in Ukraine, the fractions have always continued preparing to escalate the war. The conflicting parties have been secretly laying new landmines and building of new weapons to onslaught each other to make sure that they completely slay them. No fraction is willing to be declared a failure in this war. On January 23rd, 2015 in KIEV one of the officials of OSCE claimed that there is a risk of escalation of the Eastern Ukraine armed conflict. The Deputy Chief Monitor of OSCE Alexander Hug who does special monitoring of Ukraine mission also confirmed that they had observed an indication that every side of the conflicting fractions is heavily preparing to progress the conflict which might lead to the escalation of the conflict. Hug also added that the monitors of OSCE had in several days witnessed the parties who are in conflict in Eastern Ukraine building very dangerous weapons to fight the opponents (Dembinski, M. and Spanger, H.J., 2017.). He also said that they were also digging new trenches to hide in during the war and lying of new land
