UN, October 21. /TASS/. The UN Security Council plans to have a meeting on the situation in Ukraine on October 24, Russia’s representation at the UN told TASS on Monday.
“Most likely, the meeting will be open,” the representation’s Press Secretary Alexei Zaitsev said.
The meeting will discuss the latest report from the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, which was presented on October 8. Unlike expected, the report did not reflect the topic of mass burials found near Donetsk.
Moscow took the document with criticism, saying it could not see in the report unbiased comments on the events in Ukraine. Spokesman of the Russian Foreign Ministry Alexander Lukashevich said “the document’s authors continue using information selectively, and on the basis of that information offering biased conclusions.”
The UN Security Council discussed Ukraine in the open format on September 19, where Russia had requested meeting devoted to investigation into the crash of Malaysia’s Boeing near Donetsk.
