The former President of Estonia: No peacekeepers between Ukraine and Ukraine
The ex-President of Estonia Toomas Hendrik Ilves criticized the idea of the Kremlin on the placement of UN peacekeepers on the demarcation line in the Donbass. About this he wrote in Twitter.
“I still would have understood peacekeepers on the border of Russia and Ukraine, but on the “border” of Ukraine and Ukraine is not” – said the politician.
I would understand if the peacekeepers were at the border between Russia and Ukraine but if Ukraine and between Ukraine, no. https://t.co/slnR9MwWdJ
