In the conditions when Kiev methodically continues to violate the Package of Measures, approved by the UN Security Council resolution, sabotage the withdrawal of armaments and shell our territories, what is regularly confirmed in the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission reports, reaction of the guarantor countries of the Minsk Agreements is really necessary. And the proposal of the Russian President on the bringing of UN peacekeepers to ensure the safety of the OSCE mission on the contact line in Donbass can contribute to the achievement of two important goals: speedy implementation of agreements for the withdrawal of armaments from the contact line and observance of these agreements after the withdrawal.

However, we once again draw attention of the entire world community, including the UN Security Council, to the fact that the implementation of these proposals should be coordinated with the Republics, like any other ideas and projects concerning the fate of Donbass. It is the very condition to the conflict settlement, on the basis of which it is possible to achieve progress both in the Minsk negotiations and in restoring peace in Donbass.
