THE UNITED NATIONS, June 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Members of the UN Security Council (UNSC) held an informal meeting on Tuesday to consider the resolution on Ukraine drafted by Russia. At the end of the meeting, an official at the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation at the UN told ITAR-TASS that the discussion would be continued, as not all the 15 member-countries of the UNSC expressed their attitude to the document and await instructions from their capilals.
The Permanent Mission official said, "Not all participants received instructions from their capitals. In view of this, work on the text of the document will be continued."
Vitaly Churkin, Russia's Ambassador at the UN, said earlier thrt Russia would determine the future of the document after the meeting at the UNSC. "We shall possibly hold yet another round. We shall see what instructions our colleagues will receive from their capitals," he said.
The diplomat pointed out that the principal aim of the "brief non-politicized resolution, prepared by the Russian delegation, was geared to improve the humanitarian situation in Ukraine's south-eastern regions." "It may also play a role in stopping violence," he added.
