Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin during a meeting with Foreign Minister of the Kingdom of Sweden Margot Wallström on the sidelines of the OSCE Ministerial Council meeting in Vienna discussed the deployment of a UN peacekeeping mission throughout the entire occupied area of Donbas.

This has been reported by the press service of the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine.

"The parties discussed the issue of support by Sweden, which will remain a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council in 2018, initiatives of our state, in particular, on the issue of deploying a UN peacekeeping mission throughout the occupied territory of Donbas, including a part of the Ukrainian-Russian border that is not controlled by Ukraine," the report reads.

According to the Foreign Ministry, the interlocutors agreed on the need to use international sanctions against the Russian Federation until Russia stops occupation of Ukrainian territories, as well as the untimeliness of any initiatives aimed at restoring the voting rights of the Russian delegation at PACE until Russia implements all resolutions adopted in the course of 2014-2016 by the Assembly in support of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.
