NEW YORK (QHA) -

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has posted happy news on his FB page saying Ukraine has been admitted to the UN Security Council:

- Yes, we did it! 177 votes - in favor. We did it! Ukraine is a member of the UN Security Council. Voting results conclusively proved my statement on the establishment of a global pro-Ukrainian coalition. This opens up new opportunities for Ukraine to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity. I congratulate all Ukrainians on this event!
