The United States has sent a request to convene a UN Security Council meeting on Ukraine on January 31, the US mission to the United Nations said in a statement on Friday.

“The Council’s full attention is needed now, and we look forward to direct and purposeful discussion on Monday,” the statement says.

The US diplomatic mission claimed that Russia’s actions near the Ukrainian border pose “a clear threat to international peace and security and the UN Charter.” US diplomats once again claimed that around 100,000 Russian servicemen have been deployed in border areas, and accused Russia of “engaging in other destabilizing acts aimed at Ukraine.”
