We will remind, Putin has declared that supports the entry of peacekeepers of the UN on the territory of the occupied Donbas, 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.
