VIENNA, February 19. /TASS/. The issue of possible deployment of a peacekeeping mission in Ukraine is "complex and debatable," head of the Russian delegation in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), member of State Duma’s Committee on Security and Fighting Corruption Nikolay Kovalev said on Thursday.
"The question is what will these peacekeeping forces look like," Kovalev said.
"From what we hear, it is clear that each side sees it differently. However, it is obvious that action mechanisms are required," he added.
It is premature to discuss participation of Russian peacekeepers in the mission, Kovalev noted. "We don’t know yet what kind of mission it will be, with what contingent, mandate and powers," the parliamentarian added.
"Considering the current situation, it is unlikely that Russian forces will be offered to participate," he stressed.
