US Special Representative for Ukraine: peacekeepers will split country

US Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker said that the introduction of UN peacekeepers to Donbass would not help resolve the situation in this territory.

"The details of what was proposed, I think, will actually divide Ukraine even more, and not solve the problem," he said.

As Volker noted, Ukraine must be sure that the peacekeeping mission will help restore territorial integrity, not its division.

At the same time, he stressed that the very fact of the proposal received from Moscow was important and worth exploring.

"If we can come to the point of discussing an international force to ensure security, this will be a significant step forward, the basis for implementing the Minsk agreements and restoring territorial integrity," he said.
