Ukraine: UN seeks efforts to restore stability amid crisis
A United Nations envoy dispatched by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon held talks with senior Ukrainian officials in the capital, Kiev, and pledged the world body's commitment to assist the country as it seeks to emerge from the current crisis.
Robert Serry "delivered important messages from the Secretary-General, including that the United Nations stands in solidarity with all citizens of Ukraine," UN spokesperson Martin Nesirky told reporters in New York.
The Secretary-General sent Robert Serry to Kiev as his Senior Advisor to assure all citizens of Ukraine of the UN's support and also convey that he expects all key international actors to work collaboratively to help the country at this challenging time in its history.
On Saturday, Members of the Parliament of Ukraine - which has been witnessing mass protests since last November - voted to remove President Viktor Yanukovych, and an arrest warrant has reportedly been issued for his arrest. The move comes after more than 100 people were killed last week in the latest wave of deadly clashes in the capital, Kiev.
Serry has held meetings with, among others, the new Speaker of Parliament, the Vice Prime Minister, the acting Minister of Finance, and the acting Head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, to discuss the situation and concerted efforts to bring about a stable and prosperous future.
"The United Nations is committed to assist a Ukrainian-led, accountable and inclusive governance process, in a spirit of non-violence and upholding the key principles of democracy, the rule of law and human rights, thereby creating a conducive environment for free and fair elections," said the spokesperson.
