Any peacekeeping mission in Ukraine should be in the interests of Kyiv and promote its restoration of the territorial integrity of the state.
This was stated by the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Canada Chrystia Freeland, who emphasized that the Canadian government is in talks with other countries on the viability and benefits of peacekeeping and police missions in Ukraine. As we know, Ukraine has familiarized with the UN Security Council with its position on the introduction of peacekeepers in the Donbas and is ready for its own draft resolution on this. But before the launch of the international contingent, Russia insists on the withdrawal of its mercenaries and weapons from the east.
Special Representative of the US State Department for Ukraine Kurt Volker stated that Russians cannot participate in a peacekeeping mission in the Donbass.
Volker believes that the UN resolution on peacekeepers in the Donbass may be approved by the end of this year.
