Ukrinform
Canada should support international efforts on the deployment of a UN peacekeeping mission in Ukraine on favorable terms for Kyiv.

This is stated in a report prepared by the Canadian Parliament's Standing Committee on National Defense entitled "Canada's Support to Ukraine in Crisis and Armed Conflict," which was made available to Ukrinform.

"The Committee recommends that the Government of Canada advocate for a United Nations peacekeeping mission in Ukraine that respects its territorial integrity," reads the document.

In addition, deputies called for Canada's assistance to the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine.

"The Committee recommends that the Government of Canada increase Canada's contribution to the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission in Ukraine, and consider including more women monitors," the authors said.

The possible placement of a UN peacekeeping force on the Ukrainian-Russian border was one of the issues raised this autumn during visits to Canada by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman and Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak.
