"The situation in and around Ukraine has been an example of UN’s untapped peacekeeping potential for 4 years now. Our request for a peacekeeping mission in the Donbas remains without proper response. We demand UN Security Council and General Assembly to take urgent action," Censor.NET reports citing the statement by Ukraine's mission to the UN.
On Sept. 5, Russian President Putin said deployment of U.N. peacekeepers in the Donbas was quite appropriate for solving of the conflict in the region, but only along the line of contact and with the aim of protecting the OSCE mission.
Ukraine's representative in Humanitarian subgroup of the Tripartite contact group in Minsk talks, deputy speaker of Ukrainian parliament Iryna Herashchenko commented on Putin's statement and said the Kremlin scenarios will fail; peacekeepers must be introduced across all Russia-occupied territories.
