If the UN peacekeepers are deployed at the demarcation line then it will be a new border of Ukraine. Leonid Kuchma, the second president of Ukraine and representative of the country in the Trilateral Contact Group in Donbas claimed this at IV Baltic-Black Sear Forum in Kyiv on February 23 as 112.ua reported.
'There is a united opinion in the Trilateral Contact Group and it coincides with the opinion of the president that the UN peacekeepers should be at the whole territory and firstly, at the Ukrainian-Russian border. We were offered to deploy the peacekeepers at the demarcation line to make them protect the OSCE and it means to create a new border with Ukraine', Kuchma said.
Also, he noted that the peace in Ukraine depends on the US by 90%. The politicians in Europe forgot the lessons of history and Ukraine should rely on the support of the US.
Petro Poroshenko, the President of Ukraine claimed during his speech at the Munich Security Conference that Russia has a chance to show some readiness for consensus and agree to UN peacekeepers. Kurt Volker, the US Special Envoy to Ukraine claimed that the draft resolution of Russia, which provides for the deployment of peacekeepers in Donbas only along the line of conflict, is unacceptable for the United States and the United Nations, since it will not guarantee security, but will deepen the conflict.
