‘If Washington and Kiev are reluctant to engage in comprehensive talks on the Russian proposal to deploy UN peacekeepers to the war-torn Donbass region in eastern Ukraine, Moscow “would not force them,” Sergey Lavrov said.
“We have made the proposal and provided reasoning for it in all ways possible, including through Russian President Vladimir Putin. We have not received any concrete written proposals regarding our initiative from anyone. If they do not want to discuss it, what would we do? We would not force them, would we?” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told NTV on Sunday.
The statement came in response to a reporter’s question on how Russia should react to US and Ukrainian leaders refusing to support Russia’s idea of sending a UN mission to Donbass.’
