Special OSCE Representative in the Trilateral Contact Group on Donbas conflict settlement issues Martin Sajdik believes that the peacekeeping mission is impossible on the temporarily occupied territories without the permission of the Russian Federation. He said that during the interview with Ukrlife

"I would not say it is possible at the moment. The introduction of peacekeepers is possible if the sides will come to an agreement. Without the common deal, the UN peacekeepers can not be in Donbas. We need the decision of the UN Security Council. And we all know who is the member of this Council. So the prerequisite will be the common agreement," Sajdik noted.

At the same time, he considers feasibility in the creation of the Joint UN and OSCE Mission in Donbas during the work of which the experience of OSCE will be quite useful. 

As we reported, the representatives have been negotiating about the UN peacekeeping mission imposition in Donbas since 2017. Ukraine believes that in case of implementation of the idea the peacekeepers should be provided with access to the whole territory in Donbas where the armed conflict takes place.
