President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko expects close cooperation between the United States and the European Union in the matter of creating a UN peacekeeping mission in Donbas and sanctions against the Russian Federation. He stated this in an interview with the German edition Focus, which was posted on Twitter by the Ukrainian ambassador to Germany, Andriy Melnyk.

"I expect close cooperation between the US and the EU on the creation of a UN peacekeeping mission and better coordination of sanctions, they are an important lever to draw Russia to the table of negotiations and implementation of the Minsk process," said the head of the Ukrainian state.

At the same time, Poroshenko emphasized that a breakthrough is needed in the peace process, which the peacekeeping mission can provide.

The President of Ukraine is confident that it would bring the necessary security and ensure the holding of free and fair elections in Donbas.

It is noteworthy that earlier President Petro Poroshenko stated that he had asked the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres to send a special mission to Donbas to assess the cost, number and necessary time for the deployment of peacekeepers.

The possibility of introducing a peacekeeping mission to Donbas has been under discussion for several years. The main obstacle on this path is that the Ukrainian and Russian sides see the tasks of peacekeepers in the region in different ways.
