On Tuesday, October 30, the members of the UN Security Council rejected the proposal of the Russian Federation to invite representatives of the Donetsk People's Republic and the Luhansk People's Republic to participate in the meeting of the Security Council, the news service of the UN stated on Twitter.
They made their decision during the meeting of the UN Security Council on Ukraine in New York. Russia’s proposal on the LPR/DPR representatives was not supported.
Before the meeting, the eight European members of the Security Council confirmed the position of the European Union on Ukraine, stating full support for the independence and territorial integrity of Ukraine and condemned the so-called “elections” in the DPR.
The UN Security Council's open meeting was held under Ukraine's initiative to deliberate issues related to the situation in the Donbas.
Earlier, the UN Security Council called on all parties to the conflict in the Donbas to implement the Minsk Agreements.
