Ukraine’s Ambassador to the UN called on the global organization to condemn Russia’s attacks on major cities of Ukraine and its capital on Monday.
According to Sergiy Kyslytsya who represents Ukraine at the United Nations said, the Ukrainian government and the people of Ukraine had condemned Russia’s attack, and have tagged them as a “terrorist state” for its massive missile attack on Ukraine.
In a discussion of the UN General Assembly special session, Ukraine’s ambassador to the United Nations said “Russia has proven once again that they are a terrorist state that must be deterred in the strongest possible ways, but unfortunately, you can hardly call for a sane and stable peace as long as an unstable and insane dictatorship exists in your vicinity.”
Kyslytsya decried the worsening situation in Ukraine as Russia’s massive attack landed on Ukrainian soil, saying many have been left devastated with 14 civilians dead while many are wounded and his family also felt the heat of the attacks.
Replying to the situation in Ukraine, Russia’s ambassador to the UN defended his country’s actions of annexing four Ukraine regions saying “Russia is being accused when we are trying to protect our brothers and sisters in eastern Ukraine.”
The UN General Assembly this week is set up to decide on the annexation of some regions in Ukraine that the Western countries and Ukraine had called “illegal annexations and the so-called sham referendum have no validity under international law.”
With the votes set to take hold this week, Ukraine had called on all states, and international organizations including agencies not to recognize the annexation, and also call for the immediate withdrawal of Russian troops from their land.
Though many countries condemn Russia’s attack on Ukraine’s city as inhumane, some countries have yet to have their stand by staying neutral in the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
Up till now, countries like China, India, and the like have failed to condemn the invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces, but they have called for de-escalation of the war through peaceful means.
