KIEV (Reuters) – Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on Thursday said U.S. President Donald Trump had expressed his support for the deployment of U.N. peacekeepers across Ukraine’s eastern conflict zone and along its whole border with Russia. After a meeting with Trump in New York, Poroshenko said in a televised briefing: I am extremely satisfied with the current unprecedented level of cooperation between Ukraine and the USA.” He said Trump supported Ukraine’s proposal to deploy peacekeepers “including on the uncontrolled part of the Ukraine-Russia border, which would prevent the possibility of penetration by Russian troops or Russian weapons.”
