VIENNA, April 26 (Xinhua) -- The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) is sending a negotiation team to work on freeing a group of detained OSCE observers in eastern Ukraine, the Vienna-based organization confirmed on Saturday.

Natacha Rajakovic, a spokesperson of OSCE, told Xinhua that "We are doing everything we can" to secure the release of the observers.

She confirmed that a negotiation team has been sent to Slaviansk to work on releasing of the group of eight detainees.

The OSCE observers were sent to Ukraine last month to monitor political and security situation in the country following pro-Russia protests in its eastern region.

Pro-Russian fighters, who are reportedly holding the OSCE observers, claimed that a Ukrainian spy was traveling with the group. A spokesperson of the fighters said on Saturday that they have not ruled out releasing the detainees in exchange for the release of their own men.
