Poroshenko said that the Russian side agrees to the placement in the Donbass of armed police for/by the OSCE mission. Poroshenko in an interview to Ukrainian TV channels on Sunday evening:
I am very pleased that this strong position of the Ukrainian side now supported by our partners in the Channel format, partners in Pindostan, and finally we see that Russia agrees to this format. I think we should get it.
If this is true or at least not followed by a clear and unequivocal refutation of the Russian side, this means the input to the Donbas under the guise of OSCE police mission deployment of peacekeepers. We saw this in Yugoslavia and we know what they eventually end. In general, the possible consent of the Russian side should not be surprised: surrender of Donbass under Kiev can go different ways. The presence of Russian “vacationers,” “curators” and various “advisers” pursues only one goal: not to give Kiev to solve the problem of Donbass direct military victory. This will mean a loss of face from the Kremlin, which he obviously cannot let that happen. Creating a buffer of peacekeepers reduces the likelihood of direct military solution to the Donbass, although for obvious reasons to trust them. However, the Kremlin may significantly reduce the presence of “vacationers” of Donbass, which incidentally will demonstrate the commitment of Kremlin to implement the Minsk agreement, in particular its paragraph 10:
10. The withdrawal of all foreign armed formations, military equipment and mercenaries from the territory of Ukraine under OSCE supervision. Disarmament of all illegal groups…
Partners will receive a clear signal about the willingness of the Kremlin to fulfill all its obligations. Enter peacekeepers would mean that the implementation of the provisions of collusion is entering a decisive phase. Most likely, to elections in the autumn Russia will try to hold on in the current situation, not to create additional negative background for them, but to prepare all to surrender, it is quite logical in advance. Now it remains to be seen what will be the answer to the statement Poroshenko, the Kremlin. If there answer is that in essence, would mean the tacit support of the above. It may be some kind of a refutation, although it can mean only clarification of wording.
Here is the story he is citing:
Poroshenko: Russia agrees to an armed police mission in the OSCE in the Donbass

Poroshenko said that the Russian side agrees to the placement in the Donbass armed police of the OSCE mission. Poroshenko in an interview to Ukrainian TV channels on Sunday evening:
I am very pleased that this strong position of the Ukrainian side now supported by our partners in the Channel format, partners in Pindostan, and finally we see that Russia agrees to this format. I think we should get it… (Meanwhile), attacks continue especially in Avdiivka, Mariinka and in some areas of the Lugansk region, despite the Herculean efforts of the OSCE special monitoring mission. And during the day we in one area can have from 30 to 70 attacks. The vast majority of violations is the responsibility of the occupying forces. Our troops are only fire in response. But the OSCE SMM monitors can’t fix this, because they are not armed, they can only fix the fact of firing, but can not always be fixed, what side it was implemented. That is why, in my opinion, should be introduced special police new armed mission, which can ensure the safety and protect themselves. The objectives of the mission will be to ensure the safety, the preparation and conduct of elections and transfer of power to the newly elected representatives of Donbass. I think that a political settlement can begin only when the will be provided with safety criteria. Otherwise, we in any case can not give to legitimize the Russian occupation through the mechanism of elections on the example of the Crimean pseudo-referendum or elections of Nov 2 2014. We do not allow this.
