According to Haq, the decision on peacekeeping mission should be made by the members of the UN Security Council. “We are not aware of the discussions on this matter by inside the Security Council at this point”, – he added. At the same time, as Haq stated, “any UN peacekeeping operation also depends on a request from the countries involved.”
The UN has also noted that they call for both sides of the conflict to immediately move their military positions away from densely populated areas of Debaltsevo.
The situation in the conflict zone in eastern Ukraine escalated in early 2015. Representatives of self-proclaimed republics of Lugansk and Donetsk rejected peace talks and instead launched an attack on the positions of Ukrainian troops. DPR troops captured Donetsk airport. At the moment, the militants are trying to surround Ukrainian military forces located in Debaltsevo.
