The UN peacekeepers.
WASHINGTON, 8 Oct – the special representative of the US state Department in Ukraine Kurt Volker said during a telephone press briefing on Thursday that for the appearance in the Donbass UN peacekeeping mission have not yet created the necessary conditions in terms of safety.
“I’m in the process of correspondence with their Russian colleagues. Russia is still very far from the safety of the mission. We do not see the basics to create a safe environment for peacekeepers… the Situation is not consistent with the principles of the Minsk agreement… We don’t see real basics in order to move in this direction (preparation of peacekeeping troops). We continue to speak on this important issue (with Russia),” said Walker.
He noted that despite the fact that “Russia supports the idea of the UN mission, we (the US) do not see the create a secure environment”, but the emergence of this mission will create the conditions to ensure the conditions of the Minsk agreements. He therefore hoped that Moscow “will find the correct decision.”
