THE UNITED NATIONS, March 02, /ITAR-TASS/. A meeting of the U.N. Security Council on the situation in Ukraine cannot begin due to attempts of several countries to change the format of the meeting at the last moment, Russian Permanent Representative in the United Nations Organisation Vitaly Churkin told reporters on Saturday.
“We are prepared to have serious debates, but several members of the U.N. Security Council decided to change the format of a meeting at the last moment. This should not be done so. Instead of getting down to business, we are having this strange discussion,” he said.
Ambassadors of 15 member-countries of the U.N. Security Council gathered for a meeting involving U.N. First Under-Secretary-General Jan Eliasson. Ukrainian Permanent Representative Yuri Sergeyev came to the session hall after that.
Several members of the U.N. Security Council called for making the meeting open and webcasting it, a diplomat of a Western country told reporters. However, no consensus was reached to this effect.
