U.N. peacekeepers must be introduced across all Russia-occupied territories of Ukraine.

Ukraine's representative in Humanitarian subgroup of the Tripartite contact group in Minsk talks, deputy speaker of Ukrainian parliament Iryna Herashchenko wrote on Facebook, Censor.NET reports.

"Putin, in keeping with the best traditions of hybrid war, is trying to distort the idea of the Ukrainian leadership on peacekeepers in the Donbas, to turn it upside down. He orders his loyal minister Lavrov to introduce a resolution in the U.N. Security Council on peacekeepers at the contact line. Wait a minute: the contact line became a contact line because of the Russian aggression. For us, it's a contact line with territories temporarily occupied by Mordor which we will definitely have back. It's a line that should disappear for good from the Ukrainian land on the day we regain control over the border. It's not a Ukrainian border, so there could be no peacekeepers only along the contact line," Herashchenko wrote.

She added that "the Kremlin scenarios will fail."

"The peacekeepers should be introduced across all Russia-occupied territories to monitor security and demilitarization. And their mandate should end at the Ukraine-Russia border. It's Izvaryne and other border crossing points, not Stanytsia Luhanska or Marinka, as the Kremlin chief desires," she said.

Earlier, Russian Defense Ministry spokesperson Mariya Zakharova said the initiative to have U.N. peacekeepers in the conflict area in the Donbas was an attempt to undermine the Minsk 2 process.

Ukraine's initiative to introduce U.N. peacekeepers in the Donbas was announced by President Poroshenko on Aug. 22.
