The United Nations Security Council held an emergency meeting at 9 p.m. EST after Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he now recognizes part of Ukraine as Russia and he will send in his troops to be peacekeepers.

The U.K. was quick to announce sanctions. They rebuked Russia along with Mexico, Ireland, Norway, Ghana, and others. But it was Kenya that took the remarks a step further.

"The territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine stands breached," said Ambassador Martin Kimani. "The Charter of the United Nations continues to wilt under the relentless assault of the powerful. In one moment it is invoked with reverence by the very same countries who then turn their backs on it in pursuit of objectives diametrically opposed to international peace and security. In the last two meetings on the situation in Ukraine and the buildup of forces by the Russian Federation, Kenya urged that diplomacy be given a chance. Our cry was not heeded and more importantly, the charter's demand for states to settle their international disputes by peaceful means in such a manner that international peace and security and justice are not endangered has been profoundly undermined. Today, the threat for use of force against the territorial integrity and political independence of Ukraine has been affected. Kenya is gravely concerned by the announcement made by the Russian Federation to recognize the enhanced regions of Ukraine as independent states."

He went on to say that Kenya is seriously concerned about the impact Russia could have if they are allowed by the UN to march into and seize other countries. His example was that the African borders were accepted by all of the countries there, despite those borders being forced on them by colonialists. He explained that the African nations made that decision instead of having endless wars.

"We rejected expansionism on any basis, including racial, ethnic, or cultural," Kimani said. "We rejected again today. Kenya registers strong concern and opposition to the recognition to the independent states. We further strongly condemned the trend in the last few decades a powerful states, including members of the security council, reaching international law with little regard."
