Russia’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Vitaly Churkin, has criticized Ukraine’s call for the deployment of UN peacekeeping force in eastern Ukraine.
Churkin said the call was a destructive move and “raises suspicions that he (Ukraine President) wants to destroy the Minsk accords.”
The Minsk ceasefire deal was reached a week ago but fighting around the strategic town of Debaltseve led to the withdrawal of Ukrainian troops on Wednesday.
The Ambassador accused Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko of looking for a new scheme instead of doing what he had signed up to.
“If one proposes new schemes right away, the question arises whether the accords will be respected,” he said.Follow Us on Social Media
