Poland´s ambassador to Ukraine Jan Piekło has proposed the Yugoslavian scenario to be implemented in Ukraine.

Disproof

This is misleading. The Ambassador did not propose a Yugoslavian scenario. In an interview with the Ukrainian weekly Fokus, he expressed the view that the Minsk and Normandy formats dealing with the conflict in Donbas are not working and other solutions should be considered; and pointed out that the war in Yugoslavia only ended with the intervention of both NATO and the US. However, the inclusion of NATO in the Donbas conflict resolution could lead to an even greater confrontation, Piekło says and points out that without the US, it will be very difficult to achieve peace in Donbas. bit.ly/2tx1g0j, Further debunking: bit.ly/2txfFK1,
