MOSCOW, June 14. /TASS/. Any speculation about a United Nations peacekeeping mission in Ukraine is out of place as having a propaganda character, Russian Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin said on Tuesday.
"They must pass a law on Donbass’ special status, a law on amnesty and organize elections," he said in an interview with the Rossiya-24 television channel. "Very complicated work is underway on how to organize elections. The problem is that Kiev refuses to speak with Donetsk and Lugansk directly."
"It is a very difficult matter which needs to be thought over," he noted. "I hope when this matter is clarified they will come to common understanding about how to conduct elections. What kind of peacekeeping mission are they talking about? It is an inappropriate and purely propagandistic speculation."
