The OSCE has removed one of the Russian members for the Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) in Ukraine after video surfaced showing the man, identified as Maksim Udovichenko, drunk and bragging about his former role as a member of Russian Special Forces (Spetsnaz), while making disparaging remarks about Ukraine. RFE/RL reports:

In one video, he is seen speaking to an elderly woman in a city identified as Severodonetsk, a government-controlled city in eastern Ukraine. "This is all rubbish, you know, your Ukraine is rubbish," he says. "There is the great Russia, you know. It stands near."

In another, an apparently drunk and secretly recorded Udovichenko is shown telling unseen individuals inside a hotel room that he is a retired lieutenant colonel with the Special Purpose Forces, known as Spetsnaz, and served as a commander of a military unit in Chechnya in 1994.
