The UN security council is meeting on Monday to discuss the Ukraine crisis, with Washington vowing to hold Moscow to account as it works with Nato allies to beef up sanctions should Russia invade its neighbour, APA reports citing The Guardian.

Fears of an imminent incursion have grown in recent days, despite denials from Moscow and pleas from Ukraine’s president to avoid stirring “panic” over the massive Russian military build-up on the border.

The US and Britain on Sunday flagged new and “devastating” economic sanctions against Russia, as Washington and its allies step up efforts to deter any invasion of Ukraine.

With tensions soaring, the US said it was prepared to push back against any “disinformation” Moscow put forward in what is expected to be one of the most closely watched UN sessions in years.
