Vladislav Berdichevsky: We reject any peacekeeping assistance with deployment of military units of other states in territory of Donbass

The resolution of a military confrontation between the Republics of Donbass and Ukraine lies solely within the framework of the signed Minsk agreements and a corresponding resolution of the United Nations Security Council, therefore a statement of the President of Belarus on a deployment of peacekeepers is untimely. This was stated by Deputy of the DPR’s People’s Council Vladislav Berdichevsky in an interview to the official website of the Donetsk People’s Republic.

ʺWe are well aware of the leader of Belarus’ desire to assist with the settlement of the conflict in Donbass and his concerns on this matter. Belarus has been recently forced to impose restrictions on crossing Belarusian-Ukrainian border due to a flow of arms from Ukraine.

In this context, Alexander Lukashenko’s words about the possible deployment of Belarusian peacekeepers are perceived as Minsk’s attempt to contribute to peace in Donbass,ʺ the deputy said.

Vladislav Berdichevsky added that the resolution of the military conflict in Donbass was exclusively within the Minsk agreements.

ʺWhile noting the role of Minsk in the political aspect of the resolution of the conflict, we reject any peacekeeping assistance with the deployment of military units of other states in the territory of Donbass,ʺ the deputy noted.
