Poland supports sending UN peacekeers to Donbas

At the UN Security Council in New York at a forum dedicated to the role of international law in the maintenance of peace and security, President Andrzej Duda of Poland stated that Poland supports the idea of sending UN peacekeepers to Donbas, Polskie Radio reported.

According to him, the illegal annexation of the Crimea and the actions of separatists in the Donbas would be impossible without strong support from outside. He believes that the current situation puts the security of all of Europe in jeopardy.

“Poland supports the idea of sending UN peacekeeping forces to Ukraine. Such a mission should not be limited to the protection of OSCE personnel, but should cover the entire territory of the conflict, including the Ukrainian-Russian border,” said Duda.

At the same time, he also mentioned the conflicts in Georgia, Moldova and Nagorno-Karabakh.

Poland holds the presidency of the UN Security Council in May. Almost 70 countries agreed to participate in the discussion.

Earlier, Russia said that peacekeepers will enter the Donbas only with the permission of representatives of the so-called DPR and LPR.
