For years, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has proposed a peacekeeping mission in eastern Ukraine as an important instrument to achieving a peace settlement. This fall, Russian President Vladimir Putin also suggested a limited peacekeeping mission as one element towards a settlement. Are international peacekeepers or peace enforcers instrumental or even necessary for ending the war in Donbas?

The Atlantic Council and the Razumkov Centre are assembling a panel of experts to discuss Russia's war in Donbas and the prospect of a peacekeeping operation.

We hope you can join us for this timely discussion.
