Putin, Merkel agree on changes to United Nations forces deployment in Ukraine proposal

Putin, Merkel agree on changes to United Nations forces deployment in Ukraine proposal”

Chancellor Angela Merkel plans to discuss the crisis in North Korea in a telephone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin, her spokesman Steffen Seibert said on Monday.

Putin explained in detail the Russian initiative for creating a special United Nations mission for maintaining the security of the OSCE monitoring mission.

"In response to Angela Merkel's ideas the Russian leader expressed the readiness to complement the functions of the UN mission described in the Russian draft of the proposed UN Security Council's resolution", the Kremlin's press-service said.

German government spokesman Steffen Seibert said that Merkel welcomed Russia's proposal to deploy United Nations peacekeepers to address the Ukraine crisis, but stressed that the proposed mandate needed to be expanded.

Russian Federation last week asked the UN Security Council to authorise the deployment of a lightly-armed mission to protect worldwide observers monitoring the conflict in eastern Ukraine.

Ukraine believes external peacekeepers from the OSCE should be deployed throughout separatist-held territory and on the sections of the Ukraine-Russia border that are not under Kiev's control.

Ukraine and its Western allies accuse Russian Federation of being behind the insurgency in a conflict that has killed 10,000 people since 2014.

The war has persisted despite a European-brokered agreement on a cease-fire and a settlement road map that was signed by Ukraine, Russia, and the separatists in February 2015.
