The “blue helmets” can appear in the conflict zone in Eastern Ukraine.

The President of Ukraine has complained that “the question of the UN peacekeeping mission and a military mission of OSCE is moving hard enough”. The reason for this is the reluctance of Russia, said Poroshenko.

Earlier it was reported that Petro Poroshenko was planning to raise the issue during a telephone conversation with the leaders of “Norman Quartet”, which took place the night before.
