Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin says that Ukraine’s project for the resolution on deploying a UN peacekeeping mission to Donbas is ready, as Inter informs.
“A few hours ago, I talked to U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker, we agreed the main parameters of our view, the text of the resolution, our project, is de-facto ready. I’m saying ours because it’s also the USA, Germany, and France, and we’ve been working with the UK by a very specific logic,” Mr. Klimkin said.
As it was reported earlier, the Wall Street Journal wrote their diplomatic source told them the US suggests to deploy 20,000 UN peacekeepers in the war-torn Donbas.
Previously Vladimir Putin instructed the Russian Foreign Ministry to introduce the draft resolution to the UN Security Council, as he believes such a mission could help resolve the conflict. Ukraine phrased its opinion on the subject, saying that it objects to having peacekeepers from Russia participating in the UN mission.
Ukraine also insists that the peacekeeping mission must be deployed on all occupied territories, including the Russian border. Russia objects to this, saying that it contradicts the Minsk agreements, and insisting that the peacekeepers are needed solely to guard the SMM OSCE observers and be present on the contact line.
