An emergency session of the United Nations Security Council
has meet at Russia's request after pro-Moscow forces came under attack from
Ukraine's security forces in the country's eastern town of Slovyansk. 
Vitaly Churkin, Russia's ambassador to the UN, accused the
West in Friday's meeting of using double standards in dealing with the Ukraine
crisis, claiming the Ukrainian government was using force against pro-Moscow
civilians with the encouragement of the United States and the European Union.
The respresentatives of Western nations at the meeting,
including ambassadors of UK, US and France, said they would not be "fooled
by Russia", saying that the fact pro-Russian rebels shot down Ukraine's
military helicopters was one of the clear indications that they were not
Gerard Araud, France's ambassador to the UN, said
"Russia has opened a Pandora's box", but added that it was still
possible to deescalate the situation in eastern Ukraine if Moscow withdrew its
troops from the border.
Tensions are high after pro-Russia forces shot down two
Ukrainian helicopters on Friday and Ukraine launched its first major offensive
against an uprising in the east against Kiev's interim government.
Three pro-Moscow rebels, two Ukrainian military servicemen
and two civilians were killed in the attack, according to information provided
by the rebel spokeswoman and Ukranian defence ministry.
Ukraine's Western-backed government accuses Russia of
fomenting the rebellion.

meeting that the security council needed to keep "a very close eye

The prospect for any council action is highly unlikely, as
Russia holds veto power as a permanent council member.
Meanwhile, Barack Obama, US president, and Angela Merkel,
German chancellor, agreed to impose "sectoral sanctions" on Russia if
Moscow impeded plans for elections in Ukraine later this month.
Odessa clashes
In Odessa, a southern Ukrainian town, pro-Russians
clashed with demonstrators for "United Ukraine" later on Friday,
leaving at least one man killed and many injured.
Police said in a statement protesters had thrown petrol
bombs, paving stones and "explosive devices" during the
confrontation, and that at least 40 people died and scores were injured. The
death score has included 38 people who died in the fire of trade union building,
the statement said.
Meanwhile, Oleksandr Turchynov, Ukraine's interim president,
said on Friday that Ukrainian border troops had rebuffed attempts by Russian
"armed saboteurs" to cross into Ukraine overnight. 
Russia's security service later denied the allegation.

COMMENT: How funny when the Russian shameless President opened his
trousers in front of the International 

Community of Nations and started to fuck
 the Ukraine Russians and now when the
Ukraine shoved the weapon through ass hole of the shameless bastard, he started
shouting to the world asking help accusing US to be fiddling with his sex enjoyment.
What type of a bitch that gave birth to such an animal in
Russia that could become a President of a country. The person who nominated
must have been a worse animal that this half feet high shameless idiot .
