(VOVworld) – Secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) Oleksandr Turchynov on Tuesday called on the UN and EU to introduce peace-keeping forces into the conflict zone in Donbass, eastern Ukraine. Turchynov mentioned that the Foreign Ministry had already prepared the appropriate appeal and expressed hope that the Parliament would support it.

Earlier, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko called for an international peacekeeping mission for his country after ordering several thousand of his troops out of the strategic eastern Ukrainian town of Debaltseve. The move came just hours after thousands of Ukrainian troops fled Debaltseve, a strategic rail hub that links the separatist strongholds of Luhansk and Donetsk. President Poroshenko said the peace-keeping forces will work under the mandate of the UN Security Council and police force from the EU is the best choice. Mr. Poroshenko said this will be the most effective and suitable way to assure security in the country.
