The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko intends to present the idea of introduction of peacekeepers in Donbass
The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko intends to present the idea of introduction of peacekeepers in Donbass at the session of the UN General Assembly in new York in September.
“The idea with the peacekeepers I’m going next month to present in new York at the session of the UN General Assembly. Yes, the aggressor is a permanent member of the UN security Council and, unfortunately, has the right of veto, but this does not mean that we should not strive for such a solution,” he said during his speech in Severodonetsk Luhansk region on Tuesday.
P. Poroshenko noted that on 24 July, during the telephone negotiations of leaders of the “Norman format,” he emphasized a need for the introduction in the Donbass UN peacekeeping mission with the mandate of the UN security Council.
“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 reasons for conflicts and discussions”, – he stressed.
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”, he said.
That is why Poroshenko intends to present this idea at the UN General Assembly in September.
President Petro Poroshenko also intends to raise the issue of the announcement of a ceasefire in the Donbas from August 25 or September 1, during a telephone conference in the Normandy format.
“In Kiev today (22 August –approx.ed) the evening I held a telephone conference in the Normandy format, where we will insist on strengthening of a military mission in the Donbass, and the introduction of UN peacekeepers, and the announcement of the cease-fire with 25 or September 1, so children could at least to go to school,” said Poroshenko.
