KIEV, June 4. /TASS/. Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, on Thursday passed a law allowing foreign armed forces to support "peace and security in the country."
A total of 240 lawmakers voted for the decision, 14 more than the minimum required.
"Carrying out international operation on supporting peace and security in Ukraine will ensure efficient implementation of the protocol after consultations of the Contact Group," an explanatory note says.
