Ukrainian First Deputy Foreign Minister, Head of the Mission of Ukraine to NATO Vadym Prystaiko stated this on the air of Radio Liberty.
According to him, the Ukrainian government is considering various additional mechanisms to end the war in Donbas.
"If the Minsk agreements have not brought peace for three years, then maybe there are some additional mechanisms that the Ukrainian government must use to let our people live in peace. That is why we are talking about peacekeeping forces in any format ... The option of arming the OSCE mission (current or a new one) was discussed, so that they could feel more confident and visit those places they should. Another option is a UN peacekeeping mission. Of course, we know who is blocking, this is Russia that supports the militants," he said.
As reported, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko stated on August 22 that the idea of deploying a UN peacekeeping mission in Donbas would be presented at a meeting of the UN General Assembly in New York in September.
