DPR, LPR reminded Volker UN peacekeepers won’t be present in Donbass without their consent

UN forces will appear in the Donbass only if their mandate is approved in Donetsk and Lugansk. This was stated in a joint message of the DPR and LPR representatives Denis Pushilin and Vladislav Deinego at the talks of the Contact Group.

Thus, they commented on the words of the US State Department’s Special Representative to Ukraine Kurt Volker, who the day before said that the issues of the deployment of the UN mission had already been resolved, and the opinion of the Republics did not matter.

Representatives of the Republics also did not rule out that Volker’s statements are connected with the fact that he “apparently did not have time to get acquainted with the originals of the Minsk agreements”.
