Ukraine's Permanent Representative to the United Nations Volodymyr Yelchenko said this at a briefing of the UN Security Council on the situation in Ukraine in New York on Tuesday, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.
"As it has become plainly obvious from the Russian statement, the Russian delegation is preoccupied, first and foremost, with using the Council platform to wage its disinformation campaign with regard to Ukraine and to accuse the Ukrainian government of everything and anything that happens in the occupied territories in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions," Yelchenko said.
According to him, it has everything to do with "desperate attempts to avoid responsibility for Russia's well-documented wrongful acts against Ukraine: the military aggression, occupation and attempted illegal annexation of Ukraine's territories."
"It is a behavior of a hardened and unrepentant criminal determined to make a mockery of a justice system," the Ukrainian ambassador said.
In view of this, he criticized Russia's non-constructive position in the UN Security Council.
"I would like to express my deepest disappointment over the stance of the Russian side, which appears to be hell-bent on sabotaging all genuine efforts to find a peaceful solution to the conflict and to bring peace to the war-torn regions of Donbas," Yelchenko said.
