But she didn’t announce any details of the meeting.

At least three Security Council meetings on Ukraine will take place in February discussing the humanitarian situation, peace and security in Ukraine.

Western countries are stepping up their military and ammunition support for Ukraine. EU officials said they will provide training for 30,000 Ukrainian troops, doubling the number set out last November.

The EU’s training program is being implemented in many European countries, with the main base in Poland and will be completed before the second quarter of this year.

The US, UK and a number of EU countries have committed to providing tanks to Ukraine and training the Ukrainian army to use these vehicles.

On Wednesday, Russia warned that Western countries’ transfer of weapons and military equipment to Ukraine could lead to a significantly high risk of conflicts between nuclear powers.
