According to Nazarenko, it is the idea of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, which is that there is an opportunity to draw the OSCE police mission, and gradually, on the basis of the Minsk agreements, reach control of the border area with Russia, which is not controlled.

"At the first stage it is about ensuring control using forces of the OSCE armed police mission, then create of a demilitarized zone along the border, to which would have access only the representatives of the OSCE and those who carry out these tasks. Then we will establish and use he modern technical means, ranging from surveillance to the use of drones , "- said the head of the State Border Service.
