Ukraine at UN: Security Council important for documenting evidence of “Ribbentrop's reincarnation”

Ukraine recognizes the importance of the Security Council platform for documenting the testimony of the modern-day reincarnation of Ribbentrop and his henchmen.

That’s according to Sergiy Kyslytsya, Ukraine's Ambassador to the UN, spoke of this, addressing the Security Council on Monday in response to the speech by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, who accused the West of providing military assistance to Kyiv, an Ukrinform correspondent reported from New York.

"These testimonies will undoubtedly be used in future trials against Russian war criminals," Kyslytsya emphasized, noting that the person who convened the UNSC meeting (Lavrov - ed.) "quickly fled from the Chamber."

He recalled that Russia had filed a motion to discuss at the UNSC the supply of weapons. " Indeed, transfers of weapons and military equipment that Russia receives, in particular from Iran and DPRK, continue to fuel the conflict and result in increased toll of casualties among civilian population of Ukraine," he noted.

Kislytsya spoke about another "testimony, or rather full confession", made last week by the Deputy Chairman of Russia’s Security Council, Dmitry Medvedev. "He openly and honestly outlined in his Telegram channel real goals of the Russian war against Ukraine – to kill all Ukrainians as long as they want to have their own independent country."

This is “the manifesto of genocide, plain and simple, that could only be compared to another manifesto, written almost 100 years ago and known under the title ‘Mein Kampf,’” said Ukraine’s permanent representative to the UN.

According to the ambassador, Russia accuses others of neo-Nazism to justify its own aggression. "In fact, this is a psychological phenomenon of projection, when own thoughts, feelings and ideas are attributed to others," Kyslytsya noted.

He also noted that, despite increased missile attacks by Russia, casualty statistics have gone down because most of the Russian missiles miss their targets thanks to air defense capabilities the allies have provided to Ukraine.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, on Monday, the UN Security Council met on Monday at Russia’s initiative to once again try to condemn international arms supplies to Ukraine. The Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, Sergei Lavrov, flew in to attend the event in person.
