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.

The document will serve as grounds for carrying out a peacekeeping operation on Ukraine’s territory based on the UN or the EU decisions as part of providing the country’s with aid.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said earlier Ukraine had the right to turn to the UN Security Council with the request for deploying peacekeepers in an effort to establish peace in the country.
