UNITED NATIONS, January 25. /TASS/. The UN Security Council plans to hold an emergency meeting on Monday to discuss the situation in Ukraine’s southeast that has sharply deteriorated in recent days.
UK Mission to the UN spokesperson Iona Thomas said the open-door meeting, which has been requested by Lithuania, is planned for 15:00 New York time (1100 p.m. Moscow time).
The meeting will become the 29th since the beginning of the Ukrainian crisis. The discussion is to focus on the shelling of residential buildings in Mariupol, in Ukraine’s southeast, on Saturday morning.
The UN Security Council members failed on Saturday to agree on a joint statement for journalists to condemn the incident.
At least 30 people, including two children, were killed in the shelling in Mariupol on Saturday, in the latest violence to rock the Donetsk region. Another 102 people were injured, at least 75 of whom needed hospital treatment, and many suffered shrapnel injuries. Kiev and militia traded blame for the attack.
