Russian Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin doubts the possibility of UN peacekeepers' deployment in Ukraine.
"This question should be raised to see everyone's reaction and to set a political goal” – he said in his interview with Channel One.
“Probably, consent of Kyiv, the Ukrainian government will be necessary. As a rule, such consent is asked for. It is debatable whether they will agree to the presence of the peacekeeping contingent if Kyiv intends to carry on the army operation in the east and they wish to solve this problem by force," - Churkin noted.
“Theoretically, the UN Security Council may adopt a resolution consistent with Chapter 7 of the UN Charter, which stipulates the use of force, and the deployment of a peacekeeping contingent in Ukraine will be possible without consent of the national government in this case,- he said.
"Clearly, this is a completely unrealistic scenario," the Russian envoy to the UN said.
