DPR leader Alexander Zakharchenko has criticized the plan to bring a 20,000-strong UN peacekeeping force to the Donbass, which, according to the media, the United States of America intends to offer. He spoke of this today at a meeting with journalists in Donetsk.

“Twenty thousand people are practically two army divisions. It is an army, they say, that must enter the territory of the Donbass to ensure the protection of the OSCE. Thirty people per one representative of the OSCE is a rather a lot of protection, and very expensive.” – said Zakharchenko.

The head of the Republic somewhat ‘trolled’ Kiev, saying that they could potentially count on the occupation of Donbass with the assistance of the Americans, but in practice “the idea of ​​bringing a twenty-thousand strong contingent of the United Nations – beats the prestige of the Ukrainian authorities.”
