Russia will not allow GUAM (Georgia, Ukraine, Azerbaijan and Moldova) peacekeepers to the conflict zones in the CIS, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov told Greek “Katimerini” newspaper, APA reports.

He said GUAM plans to deploy its peacekeepers not only to Abkhazia and South Ossetia, but also to Nagorno Garabagh and Transnistria.

“Russia wants to solve current conflicts in political way and therefore will take adequate actions to prevent this scenario,” the Minister said.
