 Russia Cannot Unilaterally Implement a Peacekeeping Mission. We Have a Liberating War, Not a Civil One - NSDC

The National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine states that Russia cannot unilaterally impose a peacekeeping contingent in Ukraine.

This was stated by speaker of the NSDC Andrii Lysenko, Censor.NET reports, citing Interfax-Ukraine.

"The implementation of the peacekeeping mission is an exclusive prerogative of the UN Security Council. If it is decided to introduce a peacekeeping force - in any part of the territory of Ukraine, it should meet the condition - both conflicting countries should agree to it. As of now, there isn't any statement of the UN or the consent of any of the parties," Lysenko said.

"So intentions remain intentions," he added.

Furthermore, Lysenko explained that Ukraine does not have a civil war but a liberating one. "We are liberating our territory from gangsters and terrorists," he said.

Lysenko also reminded that the U.S. Congress has taken the initiative to recognize the so-called DPR and LPR terrorist organizations.

According to him, this recognition will lead to "a number of mandatory regulations for all countries fighting international terrorism together."
