The Russian state-owned news agency ITAR-TASS reports that the Russian ambassador to the UN, Vitaly Churkin, has said that his delegation is convening an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council "on the humanitarian situation in Ukraine."

The meeting is intended to begin at 17:00 local time in New York (21:00 GMT), however the UK, which current presides at the UNSC has not yet given consent to the meeting.

Churkin said:

"So far, the British presidency is jibbing but we will insist on convening the meeting this evening."

ITAR-TASS notes:

Earlier on Tuesday, the Russian foreign ministry said that the United Nations, the International Organization for Migration and the International Committee of the Red Cross were ready to discuss Russia's initiative to send a humanitarian mission to eastern Ukraine.

Russia's 'humanitarian initiative' is a possible pretext to an open intervention by Russian armed forces, who have been growing in number on the Ukrainian border.
