A UN peacekeeping mission to Donbas must be armed and present on the occupied territories, Sigmar Gabriel, German Minister for Foreign Affairs, said in a briefing with his Ukrainian counterpart, as Interfax-Ukraine reports.

“There should be an armed and powerful UN peacekeeping mission that has to be present on the occupied territory, and not only guard OSCE observers as a small group,” he said.

Previously the Foreign Ministry of Russia claimed that its side will not allow the deployment of the UN peacekeepers on the militant-controlled territory of Donbas.
