Advisor to Ukraine’s minister for temporarily occupied territories and internally displaced persons, ex-Ambassador to Croatia Oleksandr Levchenko says a UN peacekeeping mission in Donbas should be deployed according to the “Croatian model.”
“The ministry for temporarily occupied territories has once again analyzed the use of peacekeeping missions around the world. Having studied dozens of cases, we have come to the conclusion that the Croatian model would be the best for us from among all those that we have seen. Scenarios of events in Donbas and Croatia are very similar, although the difference is a 23-year lapse,” he said at a press conference in Kyiv, a UNIAN correspondent reports.
According to Levchenko, the peacekeeping mission could follow Croatia’s pattern. He said a peacekeeping mission, as a rule, has three components – the military (70%), police (15%) and civilian one (15%).
