The MP fears the development of Abkhazian scenario in Ukraine, when Russian troops occupied the territory as peacekeepers.

The people’s Deputy Anton Gerashchenko said that the strengthening of economic sanctions against Russia more effectively to resolve the conflict in the East of Ukraine, than the introduction of the UN peacekeeping mission in the Donbass, reports 112 Ukraina.

“The only most effective option is to strengthen economic and diplomatic sanctions against Russia as Ukraine, and our partners, the EU, USA, Canada and Japan. Due to the economic sanctions, Russia’s economy is a huge loss, they are already measured in hundreds of billions of dollars, and it drains the Russian economy…”, he said.

Gerashchenko believes that with the help of international organizations such as the United Nations was a positive settlement of the conflict, but there are negative options.

“For example, in Cyprus for 45 years can’t solve the question of unification of Northern Cyprus, which was captured by Turkish troops. There is an option when the UN peacekeeping mission on the one hand, it would seem that the need for reconciliation between Georgia and Abkhazia, but as peacekeepers is the Russian army, in fact, Abkhazia became a Russian province. We don’t need the Abkhaz scenario of reconciliation, when Russia will suggest that Russian troops occupied this territory,” − said the MP.
