Russian troops not be introduced into the territory of another State at the request of local authorities. This was stated by Chairman of the Committee on Defence and Security Council of the Federation, Viktor Ozerov, reports Interfax-Ukraine . He said that Russian peacekeepers may act only under international law. Ozerov said that Russia had examples of input peacekeeping forces in South Ossetia and Abkhazia. "But it was within the CIS, but just take and put at the call of the local authorities, our peacekeepers in Donetsk or anywhere else - is contrary to international principles and norms", - said Ozerov. He said that Russia has unilaterally do not have the right. "Another thing, if it is adopted under the UN Security Council decision on the introduction of peacekeepers, while Russia as a permanent member of the Security Council and member of the agreement on cooperation and security in Europe can join the peacekeeping troops to guarantee security in a given region" - said Ozerov. He recalled that the Council of the Federation in March at a special sitting head of state has agreed to the use of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. "This was due to the situation in the Crimea, but we acted on the basis of the agreements on the Black Sea Fleet, and only strengthened the protection of our bases. We are pleased that the referendum we did not have to use its military, and the Crimeans themselves decide their fate, "- said Ozerov. Commenting on the situation in eastern Ukraine, where pro-Russian forces in favor of the referendum, Ozerov said that "pushing the situation from the outside would be counterproductive." "Russia is interested in stabilizing the situation in Ukraine, but at the same time, people thought should be fixed, and the referendum is the most democratic way of expression," - said Ozerov. However, a State Duma deputy, member of the Supreme Council of "United Russia" Vyacheslav Nikonov said that the opportunity for political settlement of the situation in Donetsk is still there, but it is possible that Russia will provide military aid to local separatists. He told Interfax-Ukraine . "Everything can be formalized in some way, and yet the question of who they (the residents of Donetsk region) can interfere in this formalization. Kyiv If the government troops to enter or use special forces, it could cause even more explosions and the Russian intervention," - said said. The MP said that "no one has repealed President Putin issued a permit by the Federation Council on the use of force."
