UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Monday offered his mediation to help end the escalating crisis in Ukraine.
“I have been discussing this matter will all the parties concerned — Ukrainian leaders, leaders of the Russian federation, the European Union, and Americans,” Ban told in Abu Dhabi, AFP reports.
“I am urging these four parties to solve this problem through peaceful means and I’m ready to provide my own role if necessary”- he added.
“I am urging again in the strongest terms possible all Ukrainians and partners to address this current issue peacefully before it spins out of control and creates huge consequences beyond anybody’s control,” Ban said.
An agreement to defuse the crisis was reached in Geneva on April 17.
But Russia last week pronounced the accord dead after Kiev stepped up military operations against separatists that Moscow slammed as “war against its own people.”
