    On the initiative of Poland, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the US, the UN Security Council held an open meeting to discuss the situation in Ukraine.

    Poland was among the initiators of an open UN Security Council meeting, which was held on 30 October 2018 in a briefing format to discuss the situation in Ukraine. The meeting was called on the eve of illegitimate elections in the separatist-controlled territories of eastern Ukraine, which are scheduled for 11 November 2018. The participants discussed violations of the Minsk Agreements, the degraded humanitarian situation in the occupied territories and illegal annexation of Crimea.


    Before the meeting, EU8 members of the UN Security Council on three consecutive terms (20172020), i.e. France, the Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, the United Kingdom, Italy, Belgium and Germany, made a joint press statement expressing their full support for the independence, sovereignty, and territorial integrity of Ukraine.
