New York: The United States fully supported Ukraine's position regarding the deployment of peacekeepers in the Donbass, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said.
"It is very important that the US fully supported Ukraine's position regarding the deployment of UN peacekeepers in the occupied territories," he said.
Poroshenko reported this after a meeting with US President Donald Trump, which took place on Thursday, September 21, in New York.
On Tuesday, September 19, European Council President Donald Tusk, in the framework of the UN General Assembly, met with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, where the parties discussed the possibility of deploying UN peacekeepers in the Donbass.
The agenda of the UN General Assembly included the issue of the introduction of the UN peacekeeping mission in the east of Ukraine. Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he considers it appropriate to introduce a UN peacekeeping mission in the Donbass. Former US Secretary of State John Kerry questioned Russia's resolution on peacekeepers in the Donbass, saying that it needs verification. A similar thought was also voiced by former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, saying that Russia's resolution on peacekeepers in the Donbass may be a tactical maneuver.
