UN peacekeepers are needed in Donbas, but only to guard the OSCE observers. This is Moscow’s view of the mission, phrased by Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov.

He insisted that any other deployment of peacekeepers would contradict the Minsk agreements. Lavrov said this on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York after his meeting with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, while emphasizing that this issue hadn’t been discussed.

Kyiv, however, insists: the UN peacekeeping mission must work all over the occupied Donbas and on the Russian border.
