The foreign Minister also pointed out that the number of peacekeepers is important, but “the main thing is that Russia is removed from the Donbass, the withdrawal of their forces and weapons, and transfers the control over the occupied territories to the international community, how this will happen, in what sequence”.

“First, peacekeepers must ensure that Russia emerged, all the weapons had been collected or removed, or came under the control of not only SMM, but also peacekeepers. And then – who to arrest, to control, to disarm? Must be a police component,” – said Klimkin.

He stressed that the international community will help to organize elections in the Donbas and the protection of the border, but Russia still does not agree to this.

“Everything is clear: they want to keep Donbass under their control, to legitimize it, and then try him as a kind of Trojan horse to push in the Ukraine. This will not happen,” – said Klimkin, adding that the conversation with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov will be difficult.

“A breakthrough is not expected, but will try to put pressure”, – said the Minister of foreign Affairs.
