KIEV, February 28. /TASS/. A draft law on introduction of peacekeeping forces in Ukraine will be debated at the Verkhovna Rada /parliament/ on Tuesday, March 3, President Petro Poroshenko told reporters during his working trip the central Vinnitsa region on Saturday.
"I submitted this issue on the agenda of the National Security and Defence Council," Poroshenko said. "The Council supported my proposal unanimously. And I hope that the draft law will get to the Verkhovna Rada the next week, on Tuesday."
At the same time, earlier in the day Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk said that the parliament would convene a session on Monday, March 2, as a package of reforms needed for getting a loan from the International Monetary Fund /IMF/ should be considered on an expedient basis.
Earlier, Russia’s Permanent Representative to the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe /OSCE/ Andrey Kelin said that the initiative to deploy peacekeepers in Ukraine was at the earliest stage of discussion but that mechanism for it had not been envisaged in the recently adopted resolution of the UN Security Council.
