“So it was a guarantee that in the Donbass cease fire, a guarantee that Russia stop supplying militants and withdraw its regular units, take the weapon, which she had set out to kill the Ukrainians. And I stress that as soon as Russia withdraws its troops, then we have no grounds for conflict and discussion,” explained Poroshenko.

The President pointed out that the question “the UN peacekeeping mission and a military mission of the OSCE” is very hard.

“Everything depends on the categorical refusal of the Russian Federation to establish peace in the Donbas, moreover, the reluctance to leave Ukraine alone. But I’m sure that water wears away the stone,” said the President.

Recall, the press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that the involvement of any Supervisory forces to the demarcation line in the Donbass possible only with the consent of the Ukrainian authorities and militants.
