EU police mission in Ukraine likely, says Estonian expert ({{commentsTotal}})

A EU-led police mission, such as in Kosovo, is possible in eastern Ukraine, says Maksym Bugriy, a research fellow at the International Center for Defense and Security, in Tallinn.

“In principle this is possible, these would not be troops but police officers and law enforcement specialists and of course this is very challenging and depends on how the conflict would progress,” he told ETV on Thursday.

“As Russia supports this conflict, and as artillery duels and heavy military weapons play an increasingly important part, and the European Union and the other international representatives directly blamed Russia on supplying those sophisticated weapons."

“Of course it is doubtful if a police mission could operate in this kind of heavy fighting,” Bugriy said.
