    The Ukrainian government asked the parliament to let foreign troops in if they "support peace and security" under UN or EU resolutions.

    KIEV (Sputnik) – The Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers has requested the country’s parliament to allow foreign military personnel into the country if they are providing security under resolutions set out by the United Nations or the European Union, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said Wednesday.

    “We are addressing the parliament to amend legislation on the order of allowing for and under which conditions units of armed forces from other governments may exist in Ukraine. The government proposes to the parliament to allow foreign units into Ukraine if they are fulfilling operations of supporting peace and security under resolutions from the UN or the European Union,” Yatsenyuk said.
