Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has called a meeting of top security officials to discuss next steps after Russian-backed separatists held elections. Speaking on November 3, he said the elections were a "farce" which violated a peace plan signed with Russia in the Belarusian capital Minsk. Western countries also condemned the elections, while Russia said it respected them. (Reuters)
