“In my opinion, as soon as we put UN peacekeepers, we can talk about the positive achievement in terms of a political settlement of the situation in the Donbass. Russia, which is party to the conflict, should not participate in a future UN peacekeeping operation,” – said the Deputy head of AP.
According to Eliseeva, “the peacekeeping operation of the UN must be placed along the entire occupied territory of Donbass, including the uncontrolled part of the Ukrainian-Russian border”.
