Russia will not support the United States and Ukraine for the peacekeepers, said Lukashevich
MOSCOW, 11 Dec — RIA Novosti. Russia will never support the US and Ukraine, the layout of the peacekeeping mission in the Donbass, which will actually lead to the formation of the UN administration, said Russia’s permanent representative to the OSCE Alexander Lukashevich.
He recalled that such a scheme was announced by the special representative of the United States in the Ukrainian settlement Kurt Volker.
“It (the scheme) is absolutely irrelevant to the Minsk package of measures, rather, acts in the direction opposite to those agreements, which are enshrined in this document. It is proposed, in fact, as the Minister (of foreign Affairs of Russia Sergei) Lavrov put it, the imposition via the UN some international authority, which is a key element of a package of measures, namely, dialogue between Kiev and Donbass, will replace it in terms of a meaningful solution to the problems that exist in the South-East of Ukraine”, — said Lukashevich at a press conference organized by MIA “Russia today”.
According to him, if you implement this scheme, “that is absolutely clear, there is no space or special monitoring mission of the OSCE or the OSCE as such. All will be in the hands of the UN administration.”
“So it is absolutely something else, a foreign body, which, of course, will not find ever of our support,” the diplomat added.
