A possible UN peacekeeping force in eastern Ukraine should be deployed throughout the entire territory of the conflict zone, not just on the disengagement line.

U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Wess Mitchell told this to reporters after a meeting with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in Kyiv on Wednesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

He said that the U.S. would continue to analyze the possibility of deploying UN peacekeepers and that there were many challenges in this process. He said that any UN peacekeeping force should be deployed on the entire occupied territory, including the disengagement of weapons to places of permanent deployment.

As Ukrinform reported, on November 13, a special meeting on the situation in Donbas was held between U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker and Russian presidential aide Vladislav Surkov. The United States put forward its proposals to the Russian draft of the Security Council resolution on peacekeepers in eastern Ukraine, but Russia accepted only three out of 29 points.
