Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has announced Moscow will submit a draft resolution to the United Nations Security Council.

Lavrov used a joint press conference with the Foreign Minister of Mauritania, who was on a visit to Russia to reveal the details of the resolution which he hoped would result in a sustainable ceasefire in Ukraine.

“The resolution will include demands for an immediate end to violence and a start of actual negotiations with the aim of establishing a stable and reliable ceasefire.

‘Also, this draft resolution will include a demand for the creation, without delay, of humanitarian corridors through which peaceful civilians can leave combat zones if they wish,” Sergei Lavrov told reporters.

Moscow will present the draft resolution to the UN on Monday. While announcing the move Lavrov also said that Western nations had assured Russia the situation in Ukraine would improve after the presidential election but added everything had happened in “exactly the opposite way”.
