BRUSSELS, January 25. /TASS/. NATO-Ukraine Commission is due to hold an urgent meeting in Brussels on Monday to discuss this week's tragic events in Mariupol, in southeastern Ukraine, the Ukrainian mission at the alliance has said.
“The meeting in Brussels will be held at the level of ambassadors,” the spokesman said.
Yegor Bozhok, a deputy head of Ukraine’s mission at NATO for political issues, said the discussion will focus on the shelling of Mariupol, which killed 30 people and left almost 100 injured.
A spokesman for the mission said Ukraine is conducting “an active exchange of information on the development of the events” with NATO.
Also on Monday, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), which has monitors deployed in Ukraine, is convening the Permanent Council to discuss the deteriorating situation in the country.
The European Union is due to hold an emergency meeting of the foreign ministers on Ukraine on Thursday, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said.
The deteriorating conflict in Ukraine’s southeast, which resulted in the depths of dozens in Mariupol and Donetsk, has again forced diplomats from Moscow and Washington to enhance their efforts.
Earlier on Sunday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov held a phone conversation with Mogherini and US Secretary of State John Kerry to discuss the crisis.
