"The peacekeeping force or I should rather say civil military mission is necessary for the implementation of the Minsk agreements. Such a mission as well as the EU mission was very successful in Macedonia, for example. Therefore, we need a mission that will promote implementation of the Minsk agreements," he said.
However, according to Klimkin, Russia has the veto power in the Security Council, which it may use to block the decision to send peacekeepers to Ukraine.
"Of course, it will be impossible to issue credentials for such a mission through the UN Security Council without consent of Russia. There are more chances for introduction of the EU mission. Although in this case the consultations with Russia would be inevitable as well. This makes the creation of such a mission and issuing of credentials a hard task," he said.
