Estonia supports convening the UN Security Council


Foreign Minister Keit Pentus-Rosimannus said that Estonia condemns today's rocket attack on residential areas in Mariupol, which killed nearly 30 civilians, including two children. "Today's Russian-backed separatists' brutal attack is a serious escalation of hostility, which is in absolute and direct violation of the Minsk agreements," Foreign Minister Pentus-Rosimannus said. "In the given situation we support Ukraine's call to immediately convene the UN Security Council to discuss the increasingly tense situation in eastern Ukraine," the Foreign Minister added.

Foreign Minister Keit Pentus-Rosimannus offered her condolences to Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin in connection with today's attack.

"Our most sincere condolences to those close to the victims and to all of the Ukrainian people," the minister said.

According to the most recent reports, 27 people were killed and over 90 were injured in today's rocket attack on residential areas in the port city of Mariupol.
