The EU peacekeeping mission might involve police officers, legal workers, and military, Ukraine's Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said in an interview to German newspaper Die Welt, Censor.NET reports citing zn.ua.
"You can help us set the rule of law in order to secure stability in the country for holding free elections and improve control on the border with Russia. This might be an exclusively civil mission or civil-military mission involving EU police officers, legal workers, and military," Klimkin stressed.
"There is no need in the UN mandate for a civil mission. But the member countries have to decide on their own whether they need a UN mandate for unraveling such mission. As the EU experience in the Western Balkans showed, it can be done without it," Klimkin said.
As reported, Ukraine's Cabinet of Ministers sent a request to the Verkhovna Rada to allow peacekeepers in Ukraine.
