Kuleba ridiculed Lavrov for running away from the UN Security Council meeting right after his speech ended
High-level meetings in New York are taking place against the backdrop of another escalation triggered by Putin’s statements on pseudo-referendum and mobilization.
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, in his speech at a meeting of the United Nations Security Council in the United States, drew public attention that Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov left immediately after his speech, “overflowing of Russian propaganda stamps “.
“I noticed that Russian diplomats flee as cleverly as Russian soldiers,” said Dmitry Kuleba, drawing parallels with the Russian army’s retreat during the Ukrainian forces’ counter-offensive in the Kharkiv region.
It should be noted that Lavrov arrived at the Security Council meeting, dedicated to the situation in Ukraine, an hour and a half late and only for his intervention. In his speech, in particular, he stated that “Ukraine has finally turned into a totalitarian state of a neo-Nazi type”.
Even in his speech, he began to repeat the Russian narratives about the “illegality” and “crimes” of the so-called “Kiev regime”, which, according to him, remain possible thanks to the “patronage” of the United States and its allies.
“The United States and its allies, with the connivance of international human rights institutions, have systematically covered up the crimes of the Kiev regime for eight years, building their policy towards Zelensky on the basis of the well-known American principle: he, of course, he’s a son of a bitch, but he’s our son of a bitch, “he said. Lavrov in New York.
Later, Kuleba took the floor at a meeting of the United Nations Security Council, saying that the meeting room had witnessed many heated discussions and crises during its existence, but “the volume of today’s lies of Russian diplomats has not previous “.
“Indeed, the only thing that deserves a reaction in today’s Russian speech, in all the flow of these lies, is the unacceptable jargon used by the Russian representative in relation to the president of a foreign country, the president of Ukraine”, stressed the Ukrainian minister.
Earlier, Kuleba, when asked how he would be in the same room with Lavrov, joked that he would observe a “safe social distance”.
Recall, the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine during the 77th session of the UN General Assembly is discussing creation of an international clearing mechanism.
