The meeting of the UN security Council

The UN security Council meeting on the situation in the Donbas ended inconclusively because of the draft statement proposed by Churkin.

The UN Security Council on the first of this year’s meeting on the situation in Ukraine could not agree on the Russia-proposed draft statement in support of Minsk agreements on the settlement of the conflict and calling for the investigation of the tragedy in Odessa on 2 may 2014.

During the meeting there was a verbal altercation between Deputy foreign Minister of Ukraine Vadym Prystaiko and permanent representative to the UN Vitaly Churkin, the text of statements for the press.

According to Churkin, the statement contained two points: summon members of the security Council to the parties to the conflict in the Donbas to implement the measures envisaged by the Minsk agreements, as well as the call Sobota to Ukraine to complete the investigation of the events of 2 may 2014 in Odessa.

In response Pristayko said that the first part of the statement of the Ukrainian side of the suit. As for the statement in Odessa, he proposed to expand it, starting with the need to investigate the events in the Crimea. “I think it (the proposal of Russia – ed.) is a dishonest attempt to cover this tragic event (in Odessa),” – said the Ukrainian diplomat.

After the sides exchanged a few remarks, in which the representative of the Russian Federation at the UN was again accused the current government of Ukraine in a coup d’état in 2014, in the executions of protesters on the Maidan, in the failure of the then opposition of the agreements of February 21, 2014 with former President Viktor Yanukovych.

Pristayko in response pointed out that the agreement of the Russian representative is just not signed. In addition, the Ukrainian diplomat reminded that the date of the annexation of Crimea by the Russian side considers 20 February 2014 (which is minted on the released on the basis of the annexation of the Crimea medal “For returning Crimea”) – and it’s the day before the signing of these agreements, which may be indicative of the fact that Russia pre planned the capture of the Crimea, in spite of any agreement.

In turn, the representative of the United Kingdom reported that the adoption of this statement required a consensus, which is not in the hall. And according to the representative of France proposed Russian statement does not cover all the events and therefore more work is needed in order to adopt it.
