The UN Security Council meeting to discuss the Nord Stream incident has been set for 3pm on Tuesday, February 21.


As stated in the program of the Security Council distributed on the evening of Monday, February 20, the meeting of the UN Security Council on the topic of sabotage at the Nord Stream, as requested by Russia, is scheduled to be held tonight, Tuesday 21.

It is expected that a draft Russian resolution on an international investigation into gas pipeline explosions could be put to a vote by the Council, as reported by

Following discussions over the schedule throughout Monday, the meeting was eventually scheduled for 3pm local time. The discussion of the time of the meeting was connected with the plan of events at the UN this week, dedicated to the anniversary of the invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation.

Russia originally proposed holding a meeting of the UN Security Council on gas pipelines on February 22 at 3pm. However, that was the time at which the special session of the General Assembly on Ukraine resumed its work at the UN. As a result, some countries asked to reschedule the meeting for another time.

The draft Russian resolution calls on Antonio Guterres, the UN Secretary-General, to set up an independent international commission of lawyers to investigate the Nord Stream incident. Earlier, China’s permanent representative to the UN, Zhang Jun, spoke out in support of the resolution.
