Special representative of US state Department on Ukraine Kurt Volker said that a large number of countries support the idea of the introduction of the peacekeeping mission in the Donbass.
In an interview with now, he said that only Russia is blocking this idea.
“We suggested it. Ukraine supports, “Norman four” supports – France, Germany. The EU, NATO, Canada, UK all of this support, and propose to introduce a peacekeeping mission with the UN support. Only Russia still blocks. Russia also said that it could agree only on the protection of the observers. They also say that you need to negotiate with the so-called people’s republics, who are there only because of Russia. So you need to negotiate with the Russians, because we see the situation,” said Walker.

According to him, Kiev and the West reject any agreement of any details of the UN mission with the militants who are not a party to the Minsk agreements. The discussion of the possibility and conditions for placement of UN forces in the occupied territory of Donbass is still ongoing.
Walker also added that the peacekeeping mission in the Donbas is “the right way to peace and assistance to the local population”.
He noted that he continues to communicate on the issue of deployment of peacekeepers in the Donbass with Russian presidential aide Vladislav Surkov.
“In the last few weeks we have corresponded with him on the issue of deployment of peacekeepers in the Donbas. In my opinion, this is a very viable idea and the most practical way to facilitate the implementation of the Minsk agreements”, – said Walker.
