The United States and several European countries sent a request for a meeting of the UN Security Council in connection with the situation in Ukraine, TASS and RIA Novosti report citing sources in the UN.

According to RIA Novosti, the request, in addition to the United States, was joined by France, Great Britain (they have the status of permanent members of the Security Council), as well as Ireland, Norway, Albania (they have the status non-permanent members). Meeting requested for 24 August.

The interlocutor of TASS specified that, among other issues, the results of the visit to Ukraine of UN Secretary General António Guterres will be discussed. He arrived in Lviv on Wednesday. Guterres is scheduled to have trilateral talks with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. In addition, the Secretary General plans to visit one of the three ports involved in the grain deal.

After the start of the Russian operation in Ukraine, the UN Security Council repeatedly held meetings both at the request of Western countries and Russia. At the end of June, at one of the meetings, Zelensky said that Russia has no right to continue to remain a member of the Security Council (the country has the status of a permanent member), and called for depriving the Russian delegation of powers in the UN General Assembly. At the same time, the charter of the organization does not provide for the procedure for expelling a permanent member from the Security Council.

After that, the representative of the chairman of the 67th session of the General Assembly, Polina Kubiak, recalled that the decision to expel a country from the assembly is made only by the UN Security Council.

On August 10, Russia demanded to convene a meeting of the Security Council because of the shelling of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant. During a session held on August 11, Russia's permanent representative to the UN, Vasily Nebenzya, said that the accusations of the Russian military in attacks on nuclear power plants are absurd.
