Security Council holds emergency Ukraine meeting

Published: 05.02.14, 20:35 / Israel News

UNITED NATIONS - The UN Security Council on Friday was holding its 13th emergency meeting on the growing crisis in Ukraine at the request of Russia, whose ambassador Vitaly Churkin demanded a "swift halt of all violence."


But Western powers on the council accused Russia of equipping and funding the pro-Russia forces that have seized government buildings in 10 eastern cities. Ukraine on Friday launched its first major offensive against the insurgency.


"Russia ... has released bands of thugs on Ukraine ... and is suddenly discovering this mixture might escape its control," French ambassador Gerard Araud said. (AP)
