According to the Web site of the Verkhovna Rada, the corresponding document was signed by Hroisman today, on March 19.

As UNIAN reported earlier, on March 17 the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted an appeal to the United Nations and the European Union on the deployment of an international peacekeeping and security mission.

The decision was supported by 341 out of 353 MPs registered in the session hall.

"The adoption of the resolution will create conditions for an appeal … [for] an international peacekeeping and security mission to Ukraine, which will contribute to a political resolution and an early normalization of the situation in certain areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions,” the explanatory note for the bill says.

“It will also help to restore law and order in these areas, the constitutional rights and freedoms of citizens, the rights and legitimate interests of legal persons, and the creation of conditions for the return of internally displaced persons."

As UNIAN reported earlier, on February 18 National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine decided to appeal to the UN and the EU for the deployment of an international peacekeeping and security mission on the territory of Ukraine

According to the NSDC, peacekeepers should be stationed along the conflict line between government forces and pro-Russian insurgents, and also along some parts of the Ukrainian-Russian border.
