The Security Council expressed its "concern about ways to maintain peace and security in Ukraine", affirming its support for the efforts of United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to resolve the Ukrainian crisis.


Guterres welcomed the United Nations Security Council's first statement on Ukraine and said: "Today, for the first time, the Security Council spoke with one voice in favour of peace in Ukraine."


"The world must unite to silence the defender and uphold the values of the Charter of the United Nations... I welcome this support and will continue efforts to save lives, alleviate suffering and seek ways to achieve peace ".
