MOSCOW, March 17. /TASS/. Possible deployment of peacekeepers in the conflict zone in Ukraine is a subject that can be discussed, Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday, commenting on Ukraine’s pleas to deploy a peacekeeping contingent.
"As for peacekeepers, today it is vital to follow the path of Minsk-2 and refrain from doing anything that might frustrate this process," he told journalist, adding that the subject of deploying a peacekeeping contingent could be discussed. "It is possible with the consent from both parties to the conflict, which means that it should be discussed inside first Ukraine — with Donbas, with Kiev," he said.
At the same time, Peskov noted that this issue "is not been considered by the United Nations Security Council for far." "Let us not anticipate the developments," he said when asked whether Russia would veto such voting.
