The UN Security Council will release a statement on the current humanitarian and security situation in Donbas – as initiated by Ukraine, which now presides in the Council. Kostyantyn Yeliseev, the Deputy Head of Presidential Administration, said this during the briefing in Kyiv on Friday.
‘Based on the result of the debates held yesterday, at the UN Security Council’s extraordinary session, our delegation is now working hard on the statement to sum up the talks’, he said.
On February 2, members of the UN Security Council gathered on a session initiated by Ukraine, to discuss the current humanitarian and security conditions in the embattled town of Avdiivka, Donetsk region. Those who held speeches on this topic – except Russia – mostly condemned what is going on now in the town, urging the parties to the conflict to cease fire in the inhabited area.
As 112 International reported earlier, Ukraine took over the UN Security Council on February 1, 2017, and will be chairing the Council until March 1.
