Moscow made a request to Roger Waters, here’s what he asked for

The former leader of Pink Floyd will address the UN Security Council

Russia has asked Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters to speak to the UN Security Council at a meeting Moscow has requested to discuss arms supplies to Ukraine, Reuters and BTA have reported.

“Russian diplomacy was once serious. What’s next? Mr. Bean?” said a UN Security Council diplomat who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Waters was criticized by supporters of Ukraine when he published an open letter on his website in September addressed to Ukrainian first lady Olena Zelenska. He spoke out against Western arms supplies to Kyiv.

“Let’s see what he has to say. He has a position and you’ll hear it tomorrow,” said Russia’s ambassador to the United Nations, Vasily Nebenzia, adding jokingly, “Maybe he’ll sing to us too.”

The 15-member Security Council has met dozens of times since Russia invaded neighboring Ukraine on February 24 last year. But the world body cannot take any action as Russia has veto power, along with the US, China, Britain and France.
