DA NANG /Vietnam/, November 11. /TASS/. The Russian side has not received suggestions from the U.S. about deployment in Donbass of the international contingent of 20,000 peacekeepers, President Vladimir Putin told a news conference at the APEC summit in response to a request to comment on an article in The Wall Street Journal.
"I have not heard anything about it, I know nothing about it, thus it is impossible to comment," he said, adding in practical life "suggestions are one thing, but as a suggestion appears on paper it may become different."
"Here is nothing to comment, as it does not exist," Putin said. "If any suggestions appear - we shall see."
The Wall Street Journal wrote the U.S. was about to offer to Russia a plan of deploying in eastern Ukraine of an international contingent of 20,000 peacekeepers. The mission could be under OSCE, not UN, the newspaper wrote.
