Russia has called UN Security Council's meeting on the conflict in Ukraine on Friday, warning the government in Kiev to stop its military operations in the east of the country.

Ukraine had announced a military effort to retake the city of Slaviansk early on Friday, and the United Nations diplomats convened shortly after reports emerged of a fire killing more than 30 people in Odessa.

According to international media reports, the UN Security Council members 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.

Russian ambassador Vitaly Churkin warned Ukraine " to not commit a fatal error" and stop the offensive, which he described as "criminal misadventures." He again called Ukraine's interim government illegitimate.

The council so far has been unable to agree on any action on Ukraine, as Russia holds veto power as a permanent council member.

Yes the West is also responsible for the violent attack on Eastern Ukraine.

The West is financing the illegal government in Ukraine with the full knowledge that this illegal government plans to murder Ukranians in Eastern Ukraine who want to hold self determination referendums.

"Maybe Vice President Biden will pick up the phone and call Mr. Turchinov [president of Ukraine], as he numerously called Mr. Yanukovich before Feb 21, 2014. Just call to tell Mr. Turchinov the same thing he told Mr. Yanukovich: 'For God's sake, don't use force, get rid of your military forces from Kiev.' " /Question of the Russian Representative in UNSC to his USA' counterpart/
Remember, Dear Novinite? In February, West (USA/EU/OSCE/NATO) was UNANIMOUSLY "cons" using military force by the legitimate President of Ukraine Yanukovich against Maidan. Now the same West is "pro"!!! West
encourages the illegitimate "rulers" to use force against people. It is not about "military conflict", Novinite, it is about Genocide. West approves genocide against Ukrainian people.......And "UN Security Council members" are free to accuse Russia in all possible sins, but FACT remains FACT: Junta (the illegal "new rulers"in Kiev) DIDN'T allow the ordinary citizens to leave Slaviansk, junta began military actions in South-Eastern regions, junta launched a genocide. And West supports, justifies and approves it...................
To the triumph of Western Humanism, the only true Humanism on this planet! Toast.
