Poroshenko Wants Peace, But Prepares for War...With Arms From 11 EU States
The proposed international peacekeeping mission may be deployed to Ukraine to maintain peace and security in the war-torn country.

Poroshenko first announced the idea to deploy UN- or EU-mandated peacekeepers to eastern Ukraine in February. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said the issue is up to the UN Security Council, while a number of Russian officials questioned Kiev's willingness to adhere to the Minsk agreements, which does not imply any peacekeeping force.

Ukraine's army and independence forces agreed on a ceasefire in Minsk last month. The deal obliged the warring sides to withdraw heavy weaponry from the front lines and charged the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) with monitoring the ceasefire.
