  3. Sunday April 13 2014 – UN Security Council holds emergency session on Ukraine

    The UN Security Council is to hold an emergency meeting requested by Russia to discuss the Kiev’s decision to use military forces to crush protests in Eastern Ukraine. The meeting will be public to give Ukraine’s envoy the floor.

    The United Nations Security Council is planning to hold an emergency session at 0:00 GMT on Monday, requested by Russia to discuss Ukraine’s declaration of a so-called “anti-terrorist operation” against pro-federation protesters in Eastern Ukraine.

    The urgent meeting comes after the coup-imposed Kiev government authorized the use of the military in Ukraine’s south-eastern regions to supress the popular uprising.

    Events on the ground have taken a very dangerous turn, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Sunday, slamming the order of a full-scale military operation as “criminal.”

    “The Kiev authorities, who self-proclaimed themselves as a result of a coup, have embarked on the violent military suppression of the protests,” the ministry said adding that the rallies, which have gripped the Donbas region were prompted by Kiev’s disregard of the legitimate interests the people.

  4. <b<Russian Media Report CIA Director Held 'Secret Consultations' in Kiev

    Russian news agencies reported Sunday that U.S. CIA director John Brennan had a secret meeting with Ukrainian officials in Kiev before they began operations against separatist forces that had taken over buildings in the country’s east.

    Brennan landed in Ukraine on Saturday under an assumed name and held a “series of secret meetings” with the country’s “power bloc” Interfax reported, citing an unidentified official in the Ukrainian parliament. The unidentified official said that there were “unconfirmed reports” that the U.S. security official was behind the decision to use force in eastern Ukraine after pro-Russian separatist forces took control of the city of Slovyansk.

    Ukrainian parliament Communist Party deputy Vladimir Golub told RIA Novosti that lawmakers were talking about the visit openly and opined that the Ukrainian Security Service had become a unit of the CIA.

    Commenting on the report, deputy chairman for the State Duma’s Defense Committee Frants Klintsevich said that he would view such a visit as a challenge to Russia.

    Pro-Kremlin media have spoken of alleged CIA involvement in Ukraine since pro-Western protests against now-ousted President Viktor Yanukovych began last November.

    The political crisis in the country following Yanukovych’s flight from Kiev in February has seen an increase in tension between Russia and the U.S., including the two countries’ trading sanctions against each other’s government officials following Russia’s annexation of the Crimea peninsula.

    On Saturday U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry warned of “additional consequences” against Russia if it did not take steps to deescalate the situation in eastern Ukraine, where separatist sentiment similar to that seen in Crimea led to the takeover of government buildings in several cities by armed, pro-Russian forces.
