US Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker met Ambassador of Ukraine to the US Valeriy Chaly, as the Embassy of Ukraine in the USA informs on Facebook.

“The diplomats discussed the situation caused by Russian aggression in Donbas and next steps to restore sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, in particular through deployment of the UN Peacekeeping Mission,” the statement reads.

As it was reported earlier,  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.
