The European People’s Party Summit in Brussels is over; the participants passed the joint declaration, which will mention Ukraine’s position concerning the presence of UN peacekeepers in Donbas. Kostyantyn Yeliseev, Deputy Head of the Ukraine’s Presidential Administration said that in his commentary for 112 Ukraine news agency.

‘I guess the President of Ukraine has been extremely clear when it comes to our position about the deployment of UN peacekeeping mission on the territory of the occupied Donbas. This offer was approved, and this idea will be reflected in the text of the joint declaration of the EPP summit,’ Yeliseev said.

The EPP summit took place in the Belgian capital on November 22.

Ukraine has been promoting the idea of bringing UN peacekeepers to Donbas so that the troops would be deployed across the entire combat area; Russia insists that they be deployed only along the division line.
