    UNSC holds informal meeting on Ukraine


    by PressTV

    Amid the growing tension between the West and Russia over Ukraine, the U-N Security Council is holding one more session to discuss the crisis.

    The meeting at the Security Council is the fifth in the last ten days but it has so far failed to adopt a common position on the Ukrainian crisis. Monday’s meeting also comes ahead of a scheduled referendum in Ukraine’s autonomous region of Crimea to decide whether to break away from Ukraine and join Russia. The vote is regarded as illegal by both Kiev and the West. The U-S has also expressed its opposition saying it would view the result of referendum as illegitimate. Meanwhile, ahead of the voting in Crimea, billboards are seen emerging in support of the region’s bid to join Russia. They also urge people to defend the region and warn them against living under the rule of QUOTE Ukraine’s Fascist government.
