Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Monday appealed to all parties in Ukraine to uphold the democratic principles of freedom of expression and peaceful assembly.

This follows more than a week of demonstrations in the country calling for the government's resignation after the President refused to sign political and economic accords with the European Union.

Ban Ki-moon has been closely following events in Ukraine, according to a statement from his spokesperson.

It adds that the Secretary-General encourages meaningful dialogue between all concerned in the pursuit of a prosperous future for Ukraine and mutual agreement among Ukrainians on the path forward for the country.
