"Moscow would not want hostilities to be waged somewhere, it would not want to apply such an instrument (as the introduction of peacekeepers)," the statement said.
According to him, the issue of the peacekeeping mission can be included in the order of the forthcoming summit of the Normandy Four leaders.
As we reported earlier, Oleksiy Reznikov, Ukraine's Vice Prime Minister and Minister for Re-integration of Occupied Territories, stated that Ukraine might need the help of the UN peacekeeping forces in Donbas.
"At a certain point, the issue of peacekeepers was discussed by our diplomats in the UN Security Council. The discussion concerned the nature of this mission (bringing or maintaining peace) and the actual area of deployment of peacekeepers - all over the territory of Donbas, on the division line, on the border with Russia. There were two opposing points of view, and theoretically, they could agree on something, but they delayed it", the official said.
