He also added there is a need to continue the search for the mutually acceptable solution for the deployment of peacekeepers in Donbas.

‘It is possible to consider options for deploying a joint UN and OSCE mission in Ukraine. It can include servicemen, police officers, civilian personnel from the countries that made a strong contribution to its resolution over the whole period of the conflict. It is necessary to ensure the phasing principle in the deployment of this mission, but there is almost no time left,’ Lukashenko added.
