The idea to send "some type of peacekeeping troops" to Ukraine, if such discussion is indeed serious, is potentially extremely dangerous, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters Friday, commenting on the words of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who disclosed such discussions within the EU, TASS reports.
"This is a statement that is very important to note. If we are talking about some serious ‘verbalizations,’ then this, of course, is an extremely dangerous discussion," the spokesman said.
Peskov noted that, in international practice, such forces are usually being deployed under consent of both sides.
"In this case, this is potentially a very dangerous topic," he reiterated.
Earlier, Orban opined that the threat of a new World War is quite real, adding that "this is not an exaggeration." According to the Hungarian Prime Minister, the EU continues to discuss dispatching of "peacekeeping troops of some kind" to Ukraine, which may result in a direct clash with Russia.
