Poroshenko responded harshly to Putin peacekeepers in the Donbas

Ukraine opposes deployment of a peacekeeping mission only on the demarcation line, the peacekeepers must be entered on all uncontrolled Kiev part of the Donbass. About this in Facebook said the first Vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine’s representative in the Trilateral contact group (TCG) on the settlement of the situation in the Donbass Irina Gerashchenko..

“Putin, in the best traditions of hybrid war, is trying to distort the idea of the Ukrainian leadership to peacekeepers in the Donbass, to turn everything on its head. He instructs his faithful Minister to submit a resolution to the UN security Council for peacekeepers on the contact line. The moment: the conflict line was the line of collision due to the Russian aggression,” she wrote.

Iryna Gerashchenko stressed that this line of contact from the temporarily occupied territories of Russia, and this line should disappear from the Ukrainian land in the day of the return of border control.

“This is not the Ukrainian border, so there can be no question of peacekeepers along the line of contact. The Kremlin’s scenario will not work. Peacekeepers should be imposed on all Russians occupied the territory to monitor the situation with security and demilitarization, their mandate should end at the Ukrainian-Russian border”, – said the politician.

Earlier the President of Russia Vladimir Putin said that he supports the presence of UN peacekeepers in the Donbass, however, they must reside only on the boundary line.
