Putin wants to bring troops into Donbas


Moscow is to offer the UN Security Council to pass an appropriate resolution.

Russia plans to offer the UN Security Council to pass a resolution on deploying its peace-keeping forces in the area of Boeing-777 crash in eastern Ukraine, Donetsk region. It has been stated by Russia’s Foreign Russia Sergey Lavrov during his visit to Dushanbe on Wednesday, July 30, RIA Novosti informs.

“When amid these obvious facts we hear calls to Russia to enable access of international experts to the catastrophe site, I simply have no other reaction than to offer the Security Council to pass resolutions… if they are sure that only Russia can do that, let them pass a resolution inviting Russia to unfurl its peace-keeping forces and provide a perimeter of security around the crash site… If there is nothing else left to do with Kyiv government. It is certainly just a proposal, proceeding from the absurdity of the current situation, but absurdity should have its limits, too,” Lavrov said.

The Malaysia Airlines’ Boeing 777 carrying 298 people, including 15 crew members, flying from Amsterdam (the Netherlands) to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) was shot down and crashed in the eastern part of Ukraine on July 17. According to the Ukrainian Internal Affairs Ministry, it was shot down by a Buk surface-to-air missile system by terrorists who receive weapons from Russia.
