“In the UN mission there should not be any Russians, and the “occupation forces” should leave the Donbass”
The permanent mission of Ukraine to the United Nations “brought to the attention of the Secretary-General and the President of the UN Security Council the position of Ukraine regarding the UN peacekeeping mission in certain districts of Donetsk and Lugansk regions,” said in a Twitter message of the permanent mission. Kiev with its proposals were late more than a day: draft resolution on the peacekeepers, Russia’s Permanent representative to the UN, Vasily Nebenzia napravil the Chairman of the UN security Council the tekeda alemu and the General Secretary Antonio Guterres on Tuesday afternoon.
Ukrainian diplomats in new York have placed a photocopy of the statement of the foreign Ministry of Ukraine reacted to the sensational statement of Russian President Vladimir Putin said during a press conference at the end of September of the BRICS summit in China.
The initiative to deploy on the territory of the Central Donbass peacekeeping operation under UN auspices, was announced by President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko in March 2015. However, Russia as “aggressor state”, reads the statement of the foreign Ministry of Ukraine, “is constantly sabotaged the proposals of Ukraine”.
Delivered on 5 September statement by the President of the Russian Federation indicates that “another attempt of Russia as parties to the conflict to submit to the aggression of domestic conflict” and “distort the idea and purpose of peacekeeping”.
Ukraine intends to enter peacekeeping troops to demand the withdrawal of the Central Donbass “of all occupying troops and mercenaries and their weapons.” If the UN security Council will decide on the beginning of the peacekeeping operations (PKO), the presence of the peacekeeping mission or other military personnel, “the aggressor country under the guise of peacekeepers cannot be and speeches”.
At the same time Ukraine, said in a statement, its foreign Ministry does not intend to consent to a PSO, from the “illegal armed groups” operating on the territory uncontrolled Kiev areas of Luhansk and Donetsk regions.
We recall that Russian President Vladimir Putin mentioned the representatives of the DNI and LC as mandatory participants in the negotiations on the issues of breeding of the parties and the withdrawal of heavy equipment.
Nevertheless, said in a statement the foreign Ministry of Ukraine, these and other issues the deployment of the UN peacekeeping operation in the Central Kiev Donbass “is ready to work.” Permanent mission of Ukraine in new York in this regard, it has already received a mandate to hold consultations with delegations in the UN Security Council.
As you might guess, the success of the most “appropriate consultation” to the greatest extent will depend on the position of one of the most influential powers-the members of the UN, the Russian Federation.
In a statement, Ukraine’s foreign Ministry statement never mentioned the special envoy of the US Department of state Kurt Volker. Despite the fact that unexpected twist in the resolution of the conflict in Donbas, in the opinion of most Kyiv political expert, hardly would have been possible without held in Minsk the meeting of the American diplomat with the representative of the Russian Federation Vladislav Surkov.
