After meeting with the US President, trump, the Ukrainian leader Poroshenko stated that he had received the full support of its position on the peacekeepers. According to experts, this means that in the near future to agree on the deployment of “blue helmets” under the auspices of the UN in the conflict zone in the East of Ukraine will not succeed.
Petro Poroshenko stressed that the Ukrainian position, which is supposedly fully supported by Donald trump, “provides the mandate to the entire occupied territory in the East of Ukraine, including the uncontrolled section of the Ukrainian-Russian border, which excludes the possibility of penetration of Russian troops and will serve the cause of peace.” As you know, President Vladimir Putin proposed to place peacekeepers on the demarcation line between the warring parties in Eastern Ukraine, but not on the state border between Russia and Ukraine at the Donbass.
In conversation with “MK” the Deputy Director of the Institute of CIS countries Vladimir Zharikhin said: “This means that in the near future, the peacekeepers, unfortunately, to reach agreement is unlikely”.
“There is nothing new in the positions of the parties is not present,- the analyst continued, – at the beginning of February representatives of the US administration said that Ukraine should negotiate with Russia that is designated Russia as a party to the conflict”. And now, according to Mr. Zharikhin, “the United States understands that at different positions of the two permanent members of the Security Council resolution on the deployment of peacekeepers, presenting the Ukrainian point of view will not pass because Russia and China will block it, but still do not know how to behave, for example, France”.
“I think the United States will not show special activity in the Ukrainian direction, but I’ll try not to freeze the conflict to Europe, and keep it in Polygonatum condition”, – concluded the analyst.
