UN Security Council: Russia and Ukraine requests an emergency meeting to be held on Monday

After Russia confirmed that they had occupied three Ukrainian naval ships by their forces in the channel near to Moscow-annexed Crimea, United Nation Nikki Haley announced via twitter.

Haley tweeted, “An emergency Security Council meeting has been called for tomorrow at 11:00am.”

According to news reports, the meeting, which Haley was talking about, was requested by both Russia and Ukraine.

Ukraine’s naval force has charged Russia for unprecedented incident, which even includes firing in the Kerch channel, a gateway through which both the countries gives access to Azov sea.

Russia’s FSB security service said, “In order to stop the Ukrainian military ships, weapons were used,” adding the confirmation that “three Ukrainian navy ships were boarded and searched”.

The incident took place when a tugboat with another two small warships entered the port of Mariupol through the channel, the Ukraine’s navy said.

They said that the tugboat plunged over the border guard vessel in “openly aggressive actions” and then starts firing on the ships, paralyzing all three ships together through the attack.

It said that the Russian military aircraft flew over the area after the Kerch strait was blocked by a tacker.

Ukraine claimed that their three six soldiers were fully injured with life threatening, whereas FSB reported that only three of them suffered non-life threatening injuries, in fact after a while given medical treatments.
