Negotiations Poroshenko and Trudeau: an end to “the Russian scenario” and lethal weapons from Canada
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and the Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau has held talks, after which it became known that Ottawa can deliver Kiev lethal weapons, and that the deployment of UN peacekeepers in the Donbass will not be “Russian scenario”.
“We continue to consider (making Ukraine) to the list of countries allowed to export canadian automatic weapons. Must be met certain conditions (to enable it), but we’re working on it,” said Trudeau at a press conference in Toronto after talks with Poroshenko, reports TASS.
With regard to the deployment of peacekeepers in the Donbass, the Ukrainian President said that “of course, it’s Russian script”. “The peacekeeping mission should be with a UN mandate and be placed on the entire territory of Donbas to the border between Ukraine and Russia, not to allow the troops, weapons to pass into the occupied territory,” – said in a statement Poroshenko in Facebook.
As follows from the statements of recent days politicians and officials in Moscow and Kiev, Ukraine needs to deploy a peacekeeping mission in the entire territory of Donbas, while Russia does not want to see peacekeepers on its borders, and offers to enter the zone of conflict is not a UN force, and the security of the OSCE observers.
Earlier, on September 21, Poroshenko met with US President Donald trump. After meeting at the White house saidthat trump welcomed the Ukrainian reforms, reiterated U.S. support for “the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine” and discussed with Poroshenko way of achieving peace in the Donbass.
