The Minister of Defense of Ukraine Stepan Poltorak discussed with his Canadian counterpart Harjit Singh Sajjan the issue of the introduction of UN peacekeeping mission to Donbas. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.
"I believe that the introduction of the UN peacekeeping mission to Donbas will ensure progress in the peaceful settlement of the situation, which will become a deterrent for the aggressor and will allow us to continue the political dialogue in order to return to the issues indicated in the Minsk agreements. The initiative of the president of Ukraine regarding UN peacekeepers shows that Ukraine really seeks to solve the problem, but the aggressor with the proposed format defames the very idea of a peacekeeping mission, "Stepan Poltorak said.
As reported, on Tuesday, September 26, the Minister of National Defense of Canada, Harjit Singh Sajjan, arrived in Kyiv on an official visit with the delegation. During the meeting with Poltorak, politicians discussed cooperation between Ukraine and Canada in the field of ammunition production. In addition, the ministers stressed the importance of the implementation of military programs, in particular training of military personnel.
