Zelenskyy Proposes to Station Mission of International Observers on the Border with Belarus

Tuesday, 11 October 2022

The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, in his speech at the emergency meeting of the Group of Seven, proposed placing an international monitoring mission on the border between Ukraine and Belarus to monitor the security situation.

"Russia is trying to directly draw Belarus into this war, playing a provocation that we are allegedly preparing an attack on this country. Indirectly it has already involved them. And now it wants to involve them directly.

To completely remove this provocation, to remove these narratives by Lukashenko, to remove even the assumption of any alleged threat from us, we offer our solution. A mission of international observers may be stationed on the border of Ukraine and Belarus to monitor the security situation. The format can be worked out by our diplomats. And I ask you at the level of the Group of Seven to support this initiative of ours," Zelenskyy stated.

In his speech, Volodymyr Zelenskyy proposed his "peace formula" to stop Putin and urged not to be blackmailed by the Kremlin, as the war is entering a decisive stage.

On October 10, the self-proclaimed president of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, had an urgent meeting of security forces. He announced that Belarus and Russia would deploy a joint military task force.
