UN, December 15. /TASS/. Permanent representative to the UN, Vasily Nebenzia advised on Friday the Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavel Klimkin to spread “legends about what is happening in Ukraine,” only at the meetings of the Security Council, which are relevant to his country. The remark of a Russian diplomat responded to the speech by the Ukrainian Minister that at a meeting of the security Council on the situation on the Korean Peninsula tried to change the topic of discussion, starting to draw Parallels between Russia and the DPRK.
Calling the DPRK a “client” of Russia, Klimkin claimed that Moscow, like Pyongyang, is making “a dangerous imbalance in the system of international security”, carrying out “military aggression” against Ukraine. The Minister also once again accused Russia in violation of the Budapest Memorandum, the UN Charter and the Helsinki final act of the conference on security and cooperation in Europe.
