Groysman signs appeal to UN and EU to send peacekeepers to Donbas

Volodymyr Groysman, the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, signed a decree to apply to the United Nations and the European Union on introduction of peacekeeping mission in Donbas.

The Chairman signed the draft decree today, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to the press service of the Parliament.

It should be recalled that on March 17, the MPs supported the President's draft decree on appeal to the UN Security Council and the Council of the European Union to start international operation for peacekeeping and security provision. This decision was supported by 341 deputies of 353 registered in the session hall.

Earlier, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko signed a decree enacting the RNBO decision of February 18 "On the Appeal to the United Nations and the European Union regarding the deployment of the international peacekeeping mission in Ukraine."

However, Yuriy Sergeyev, the Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the UN, said that the question of the UN peacekeepers' sending to Donbas could be resolved not earlier than in six months. UN peacekeepers in Ukraine will be able to start their work only after the decision of the Security Council.
