UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called on Russia on Monday to avoid actions that might worsen the situation in crisis-hit Ukraine.

"I urge the Russian Federation to refrain from any acts and rhetoric that could further escalate the situation," Ban said to the media ahead of a scheduled meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

"It is critical to ensure full respect for and the preservation of Ukraine's independence, unity, sovereignty and territorial integrity," leaders told reporters on the sidelines of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.
