Russia’s proposal on UN mission in Donbass still on the table, diplomat notes

A Russian proposal to deploy a UN mission in Donbass to ensure security of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) remains on the table, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov told reporters on the sidelines of the 72nd UN General Assembly on Wednesday.

Gatilov said no to a question whether the Russian initiative had been rejected.

"No. It [proposal] is on the table," he said.

Earlier in the day, Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko in his address to the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly said that Kiev would refuse Moscow’s proposal to deploy peacekeepers in Donbass. He also opposed presence of Russian representatives in the mission.
