Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko rejected the idea of deploying peacekeepers from Belarus in Donbas, as former Chairman of the Supreme Soviet of the Republic of Belarus Stanislau Shushkevich said, according to Belarusky Partizan.
According to Shuskevich, he and the Ukrainian President think Belarus is an “aggressor’s ally”. “And after this, Poroshenko said, and I had said befire, that there can’t be peacekeepers from the country which is an ally of the aggressor. Belarus, through the Collective Security Treaty Organization and an agreement on the so-called United state, de-facto has a united military formation with Russia, so there can’t be any peacekeepers from Belarus. An aggressor country can’t send peacekeepers to Ukraine,” Shushkevich said.
When asked if President Poroshenko supported this viewpoint, Shushkevich said there was no need to phrase support of all that he had said, because everyone involved in the discussion agreed with this.
