Russia will not deploy peacekeepers unless UN decides otherwise

 

The head of the Defense Committee of the Federation Council excludes the deployment of Russian peacekeepers in the east of Ukraine without an adequate decision from the Security Council of the United Nations.

Russian peacekeepers can be deployed into the territory of another state only in the framework of existing international norms, but not at the request of local authorities, the head of the Committee on Defense and Security of the Federation Council, Viktor Ozerov said, commenting on the address from the Donetsk People's Council to deploy a Russian peacekeeping contingent in the Donetsk region of Ukraine.

"Russian peacekeepers can act only within the framework of international legal norms. We had examples of the deployment of peacekeeping forces on the territory of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, but it all was within the framework of the CIS. Deploying peacekeepers at the request of local authorities in Donetsk or somewhere else is contrary to international norms and principles," Interfax quoted Ozerov as saying.

"Russia does not have the right to do it single-handedly. However, if the UN Security Council decides to deploy peacekeepers there, then Russia, being a permanent member of the Security Council and a member of the Agreement on Cooperation and Security in Europe, can join the peacekeeping contingent to provide security in this or that region," said the official.
