United Nations: Russia Presides Over Emergency UN Meeting on Russian Aggression

The United Nations held an emergency meeting on Tuesday night at the request of Ukraine on Russian aggression.

Russia presided over the meeting. They hold the rotating presidency at the meeting.

Strong words were exchanged. It’s the UN.

Breitbart.com reported:

Ukraine requested an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council (UNSC) on Monday night in response to Russia’s military incursion.

The rotating presidency of the UNSC happens to be held by Russia at the moment.

At the meeting, the U.S. denounced ceasefire violations by Russian-supported separatists in eastern Ukraine and warned other members, “The risk of major conflict is real and needs to be prevented at all costs.”

U.S. Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield said Russia was committing “a clear violation of international law” and seeking a “pretext” to push further into Ukraine and destabilize the entire region. She noted Putin’s claim of all former Russian Imperial territories could be an excuse to invade most of Eastern Europe, from Estonia to Finland.
