Former U.S. Ambassador To UN Bolton Sees Ukraine's Initiative On UN Peacekeepers In Donbas As Mistake

Former U.S. Ambassador To UN Bolton Sees Ukraine's Initiative On UN Peacekeepers In Donbas As Mistake

John Bolton, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations from August 2005 until December 2006, sees Ukraine's initiative on the UN peacekeeping mission in Donbas as a mistake.

He gave the opinion in comments to 112 Ukraine television channel during the session of the Yalta European Strategy, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"I do not think there should be peacekeepers in Ukraine. This is a mistaken initiative from the point of view of Ukraine. This means you will increase the engagement of Russia in domestic affairs of Ukraine. Russia is a permanent member of the UN Security Council... If you want to restore the sovereignty over Donbas, the last thing Ukraine should do is allow peacekeepers there," he said.

According to him, Ukraine should receive support in kind of lethal weapons from the United States to mitigate the pressure from the side of Russia.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine Vadym Prystaiko says the Russian draft resolution of the United Nations on peacekeepers in Donbas is hindering Ukraine's work of adjusting the final wording of the document with international partners.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis consider that deployment of a peacekeeping mission of the United Nations in Donbas would facilitate settlement of the situation there.
