We appeal to our partners from the Security Council of the United Nations Organization with a request to immediately summon a meeting of the UN Security Council, the Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk said to journalists while visiting one of the military units near Kyiv on Thursday, May 22.

We will provide evidence that just the Russian side makes recurrent attempts to aggravate the conflict, to cause bloodshed, attempts to capture Ukrainian border posts and disrupt the presidential elections, Arseniy Yatsenyuk stressed.

He reminded that day had occurred the fourth attempt to break through the state border of Ukraine from Russia: Just from the side of the Russian Federation three KAMAZ cars escorted by the Nyva were making attempts to break through the state border of Ukraine.

He continued Ukrainian border guards had repulsed the attempt to get through the border and immediately called on representatives of Federal Border Service of Russia with a demand to ensure order from the Russian side.

As soon as Ukraine launched national unity roundtables, as soon as we have found certain compromise, including the memorandum [of understanding and peace], as soon as everyone realized the situation in East Ukraine has changed the terrorists, supported by Russia, started attacks, aggravating the situation and provoking bloodshed, Arseniy Yatsenyuk emphasized.

I consider the statements of the Russian Federation about withdrawal of troops from the Ukraines border is a bluff. Therefore, even if the troops are departing, under direct assistance of the Russian authorities, the armed terrorists who are trained on the Russian territory are making attempts to break through the state border of Ukraine, the Prime Minister stressed.

The Head of Government informed the law enforcement bodies and Security Service of Ukraine, aftermath the arrests, received unequivocal evidence of existing training centers on the territories of military bases in Russia, that move to the territory of Ukraine afterwards.

Russia hasnt abandoned its goal, the Head of Government highlighted.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk informed that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine had sent to the Russian side a note that it is Russia that is provoking escalation the conflict in Ukraine and continues supplying with terrorists.

The Prime Minister emphasized the presidential elections would be conducted and the law enforcement bodies and army were ensuring order and law.

Ukraine was declared war. We have risen to the challenge and any attempts to disrupt the presidential elections and capture Ukrainian territory have failed and will fail in the future, Arseniy Yatsenyuk stressed.
