"UN Security Council to meet tomorrow on Ukraine at Lithuania request," Lithuania's Ambassador to UN Raimonda Murmokaitė tweeted on Sunday evening.

The meeting is organized following warnings from Ukraine about escalating attacks of Russian-supported separatists in eastern Ukraine. Some 30 people were killed in a missile attack in Mariupol on Saturday. International observers say the missiles were launched from a separatist-controlled territory.
