UN Security Council to Meet at Russia's Request

The #UNSecurityCouncil has called an emergency meeting at Russia's request to discuss the growing crisis in #Ukraine. Russia's UN mission sent a text message to reporters saying a closed meeting of the Security Council would begin at 8pm EST today. The Russian mission said it had requested the meeting. The meeting comes as the new Ukrainian government declared it would deploy armed forces to quash an increasingly bold pro-Russian insurgency in eastern Ukraine. Ukrainian special forces exchanged gunfire with a pro-Russia militia in an eastern city this morning, with at least one security officer killed and five others wounded.
