MOSCOW, March 14 (Reuters) - The Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) must get approval from the leaders of any Ukrainian region where it plans to send a monitoring mission.

The ministry said in a statement that the Russian side had accepted the mandate to deploy a mission in Ukraine.

"As for the logistics of the mission, they naturally should be agreed with the leadership of Ukraine's regions where (the mission) is expected to be deployed," it added, in a clear reference to Ukraine's southern region of Crimea where pro-Russian leaders have taken control of government.
