 Klimkin: the Matter of Attracting Foreign Troops is not on the Agenda

Head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin explains that now the matter of attracting foreign troops to resolve the conflict in eastern Ukraine is not being considered.

He stated this in an interview to Hromadske.TV, Ukrainska Pravda reports.

"Help of other states is provided in the format that does not provide for access of the armed forces of other countries to the territory of Ukraine." Klimkin said.

He explained that the situation in Ukraine is not classified as a domestic conflict or as an inter-state one; there is an ongoing "establishment of order in the country" and this format does not allow to attract foreign military units.

"All options which would help establish order in the East of Ukraine are being considered but the involvement of the armed units of other states is not on the agenda," Klimkin said.
