Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov disclosed Kiev's plan to use the UN peacekeeping mission for the actual occupation of the LDPR territory and the discharge of the Minsk agreements. On the real plans of the Ukrainian side for a completely non-peaceful settlement of the conflict, Lavrov told a news conference in Vienna after the meeting of the OSCE Ministerial Council.
Lavrov disclosed plans of the Kiev Junta and the United States on the "peacekeeping capture" of Donbass~
According to the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, Kiev, with the support of the United States, is trying simply to bury the Minsk agreements and hopes to return (in this case, to occupy) the lost territories of Donbass with the help of UN peacekeepers. Minsk, as is known, provides for the work of OSCE observers with the coordination of their actions with both sides of the conflict. When there was a problem of security for the mission's employees (through the fault of Kiev, by the way), Russia offered to arm them. Observers refused, because they did not have the experience of peacekeepers.
Later, the president of the Russian Federation suggested that the UN Forces be introduced to the Donbass, which should accompany the observers, wherever they go. The resolution of Russia of this model does not violate the Minsk agreements.
Ukraine, with the support of the United States, is trying to distort the peacekeeping initiative of the Russian Federation and, under the UN wing, to introduce something like the external administration in LDPR. The Ukrainian-American version of the resolution does not provide for the coordination of the actions of UN representatives with the leadership of the republics and presupposes a kind of peacekeeping dictate under the auspices of an international organization.
According to Kiev's plan, this administration should painlessly return the Donbass to Ukraine's control, completely leveling the local authorities and, accordingly, removing the leadership of the Lugansk and Donetsk People's Republics. The Ukrainian resolution is actively pushed by Washington, and in Vienna Rex Tillerson has persistently tried to persuade Moscow to take advantage of Kiev's solution.
As a result of rather difficult negotiations, the head of the State Department agreed to at least reconsider some of the points of his resolution and continue to search for a compromise with the Russian side. Conversation with Lavrov went to the American good. In any case, he changed his former position, frankly aimed at disrupting Minsk.
