He noted that this amount is necessary to cover all the uncontrolled territory of Donbass.
“If you take a sample of the peacekeeping operation conducted in the Balkans, and compare with the area of those countries and an area of uncontrolled territories in Donbas, according to our estimates, the number of peacekeepers is expected to reach 40 to 60 thousand people. Because you need to keep in mind that peacekeepers should ensure peace across uncontrolled territory, not just along the border, or along the boundary line, as proposed by Russia,” said Tuck.
