Putin says unaware of US suggestions on peacekeepers in Donbass

The Russian side has not received suggestions from the U.S. about deployment in Donbass of the international contingent of 20,000 peacekeepers, President Vladimir Putin told a news conference at the APEC summit in response to a request to comment on an article in The Wall Street Journal, reports TASS.

"I have not heard anything about it, I know nothing about it, thus it is impossible to comment," he said, adding in practical life "suggestions are one thing, but as a suggestion appears on paper it may become different."

"Here is nothing to comment, as it does not exist," Putin said. "If any suggestions appear - we shall see."

The Wall Street Journal wrote the U.S. was about to offer to Russia a plan of deploying in Donbass of an international contingent of 20,000 peacekeepers. The mission could be under OSCE, not UN, the newspaper wrote.
