Poland's Deputy Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski has called for an international peacekeeping mission to be sent to Ukraine following a meeting Tuesday with the leaders of Poland, Slovenia, the Czech Republic and Ukraine in Kyiv.
"I believe that a NATO peace mission or a wider international treaty mission is needed, which will be able to defend itself and which will operate in Ukraine," Kaczynski said, according to the Polish Prime Minister's office. "I would like to refer to the consciences of European leaders, to the principles they proclaim, because Ukraine needs help."
On Wednesday, NATO's defense ministers meet in Brussels.
As he arrived at NATO's headquarters in the Belgian capital Wednesday, British Defense Minister Ben Wallace said while details must be looked at before a decision can be made on peacekeeping forces, "we have to continue to show — in action — our support to Ukraine and its freedoms and not just talk."
