Press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Friday that the essence of the Russian initiative to UN peacekeepers in the Donbass is that the mission “could ensure the safety of employees of the OSCE mission in those places where the staff of the OSCE mission serve”.
According to TASS, journalists noted that the mandate of the OSCE contains the opportunity to visit different areas of Ukraine, including the border with Russia.
“Yes, of course. We are talking about the security of the mission of OSCE staff where they are engaged. But not talking about the placement of the UN mission on the border,” – said Peskov.
Press Secretary of the Russian President added that the deployment of any mission on the border is clearly spelled out in the Minsk agreements and it would be inconsistent with them.
“In any case, whatever the modality of operation of some of the missions are to be agreed between the parties to the conflict, namely, between Kiev and the unrecognized republics of the Donbass”, – said in the conclusion of the Sands.
