There has been a significant deterioration of the security situation in eastern Ukraine, the Security Council heard on Friday.

The region has been plagued by fighting which broke out between pro-Russian rebels and government forces in April last year.

At least 6, 400 people have died since the fighting began and hostilities have continued despite a ceasefire signed by the warring parties in February.

Derrick Mbatha reports.
