Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin advocated the placement of armed police mission the Organization for security and cooperation in Europe in the Donbass for the period of the elections. He told about it on air of the program «Right to rule» on the channel «1+1».

«Today it is very hard to do the mission… So we have the opportunity to take police mission in the OSCE. Her logic must be to ensure the safety of the time before the election and after the election (in the Donbass)», — said the Minister.

He said that first we need to approve the mission’s mandate, approve its budget and to convince Russia to agree to it. The Minister also expects that the mission will be armed, therefore, must also approve the terms of use of weapons. He said that the deployment of such a mission is already under discussion.

Previously permanent representative of Ukraine to the United Nations Volodymyr Yelchenko said that Ukraine intends to achieve the introduction into the country of the UN peacekeeping mission.
