Americans believe that the UN peacekeeping mission can contribute to the end of the war in the Donbass, however, the path to blue helmets in the region is not simple. “If we introduce a peacekeeping force, we must remember that Russia is a party to the conflict. And this means that she cannot participate in the peacekeeping operation,” – said the former adviser to NATO on defense Evelyn Farkas. A former NATO Deputy Secretary General Alexander Vershbow offers to leave out the peacekeeping group not only Russia but also Ukraine. In his opinion, this may contribute to the Putin agreed on the deployment of peacekeepers, but the problem of speed of deployment will still remain a priority. “What would have been a peacekeeping operation, it should go very quickly, to quickly to take the place of Russians and Pro-Russian forces. But the UN is not able to do fast operations, it usually lasts for six months,” – said Vershbow.

As the negotiations continue, Russia has warned the United States and Canada that supply lethal weapons to Kiev will negate the Minsk agreement. The response to these threats the American envoy was not pleasant to the Kremlin. “Ukraine is waging war on its territory against the occupation, its soldiers die every week there defending the country. So you should look at it not from the point of view of possible escalation of the conflict, and on the basis of the country to better protect itself,” – said Walker.
