The United States can support the financing of UN peacekeepers in the Donbass
Despite the intentions of the US administration to substantially reduce the contributions to the UN, including on peacekeeping operations, Washington is still willing to make an exception for Ukraine on the introduction of peacekeepers in Donbass.
This was stated by Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine Ivanna klympush-Tsintsadze, writes UKRINFORM.
“I think that we received a clear assurance from the US regarding the fact that the United States is prepared to make an exception to his rule that they have recently introduced regarding the refusal to support any peacekeeping mission by the UN and their payment,” – said Ukrainian official.
She hoped that, in the case of co-decision in the UN Security Council on the introduction of peacekeepers in the Donbass, the us “would be willing to support it financially”.

Vice Prime Minister reminded that Ukraine took the initiative to introduce peacekeeping mission in the Donbass in 2015, and “American colleagues fully share this approach.”
We will remind, Putin has declared, that supports introduction of UN peacekeepers to the occupied territory of Donbass, however, these forces should only be on the boundary line.
The foreign Ministry stressed that Putin wants his statement to distort the idea of the peacekeeping mission and present aggression in the Donbas internal conflict of Ukraine. The diplomats also recalled that earlier, the head of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has officially sent to the UN request to deploy peacekeeping operations, but Russia as a state aggressor constantly sabotaged the proposals of Ukraine, refusing to consider the appeal to the UN security Council and even claimed that the treatment was not.
Poroshenko plans in the coming months to submit to the UN General Assembly the idea of deployment of peacekeeping mission in the Donbass. During preliminary telephone conversations of the leaders of the “Normandy format”, he stressed on the need to introduce it in the Donbass.
Russia gave the United Nations a draft resolution on the placement of the peacekeeping mission in the Donbas.
