UNITED NATIONS, July 8. /TASS/. The issue of the possibility of sending peacekeepers to eastern Ukraine didn’t go any further, and practically none of Russia’s partners considers it to be relevant, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said on Tuesday, answering a question from a TASS correspondent.
"The issue of peacekeepers has ‘faded away’, and practically none of our partners, including Western, regard it as relevant," the diplomat said. "There was a time when Ukrainians actively raised it, including in the United Nations secretariat, asking to send peacekeepers there, but the discussion didn’t go any further.".
