Ukraine informs UN Security Council about escalation in Donbas

The Ukrainian delegation informed the UN Security Council about Russia's aggressive actions, including the escalation on the line of contact in eastern Ukraine and the build-up of Russia's military presence near the border.

"We have informed our partners, the UN Security Council members, about the aggravation of the security situation in Donbas and the build-up of Russia's military presence in the occupied territories and on the border with Ukraine. We appreciate their support, we are confident that joint efforts and pressure on Russia will stop military tensions," the Permanent Mission of Ukraine to the UN posted on Twitter.

As reported, Russia escalated the situation in eastern Ukraine in late March. In particular, on March 26, four Ukrainian servicemen were killed and two more were wounded in a shelling by the Russian occupiers near the town of Shumy in Donetsk region. In addition, according to the intelligence reports, the Russian side pulled 28 battalion tactical groups to the state border of Ukraine.
