UN Security Council holds closed meeting on Crimea
The Security Council of the United Nations has convened for a closed meeting to discuss Russia's provocations in Crimea, Chairman of the Permanent Mission of Ukraine to the United Nations Volodymyr Yelchenko reported on Twitter.
"It has already started!" Yelchenko wrote.
The Permanent Mission of Ukraine to the UN also said that "during the meeting, it will inform the UN Security Council in detail about developments in relation to the situation in Crimea and eastern Ukraine."
As UNIAN reported earlier, on August 10, the Russian Federal Security Service declared it had prevented terrorist attacks in Crimea, which were reportedly organized by "officers of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry."
Russian President Vladimir Putin said Moscow would not ignore incidents in which two soldiers had been killed while preventing an alleged Ukrainian terror plot targeting the Crimean peninsula.
In turn, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said Russia's accusations of terrorism against Ukraine were fantasy and served merely as a pretext for more military threats against the country.
On August 11, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko instructed all units near the administrative border with Crimea and Donbas to be put on high alert.
