Moscow. 21 Feb. INTERFAX.RU IN Moscow expressed disappointment with the decision of the Ukrainian delegation to block the offer of Russia to make an official statement of the President of the Security Council in connection with the death of Russia’s Ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin.
“The death Churkin was welcomed in UN circles with great sadness, and the Security Council responded to this special statement for the press. It’s a pity that some of our partners, primarily Ukrainian colleagues, chairing this month in the Security Council, are unable to transcend their political opinions and did not give consent to the adoption of the presidential statement of the UN Security Council in the form of the relevant document, being confined to oral expression of sympathy for the press” — said “Interfax” Deputy foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov, who oversees the office of the UN issues.
The official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova wrote in her Facebook that it characterizes the current Ukrainian government: “nothing good can not do, only all mess up, including myself.”
“One of the special features of work in the international the UN, primarily in SB, when almost on a daily basis has to solve the issues related to the settlement of acute regional conflicts and crises. In this respect, Vitaly Ivanovich was not equal, he gained the respect of all of its partners in the UN security Council and even those who often had to disagree,” — shared his opinion Gatilov.
Ukraine holds the presidency in the UN Security Council from 1 February.
Vitaly Churkin died in new York on February 20, did not live one day before the 65th anniversary.
