"We hope that the member states of the United Nations and, first of all, the UN Security Council, will support this request for help," he said.

"This initiative does not contradict the Minsk agreements, but rather can help to fulfill these agreements and to restore peace," Klimkin said.

The minister also said that the agreements on a ceasefire reached by the "Normandy Four" leaders in Minsk had not been implemented.
