KIEV, June 24 /ITAR-TASS/. President Pyotr Poroshenko has officially invited Russia to send inspectors to the Special Monitoring Mission of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in Ukraine to confirm that Kiev holds its promise to cease fire in the south-east of the country.
