United Nations: Six countries – including the United Kingdom, France, and the United States – have requested a meeting of the UN Security Council on the situation in Ukraine, the UK permanent mission to the UN said.
“The UK and [Albania, France, Ireland, Norway and the United States] have called for a Security Council meeting on #Ukraine. Russia is committing war crimes and targeting civilians. Russia’s illegal war on Ukraine is a threat to us all,” the mission said on its Twitter page.

The source added that the meeting would focus on the humanitarian problems faced by Ukraine.
