Nebenzya called the UN Security Council draft resolution anti-Russian and anti-Ukrainian

The draft resolution of the UN Security Council is anti-Russian and anti-Ukrainian in nature, as a result of which Russia blocked the initiative. This was announced on Saturday, February 26, by Vasily Nebenzya, permanent representative of the Russian Federation to the organization. The meeting was broadcast on the Reuters YouTube channel.

“The Russian Federation voted against the anti-Russian and anti-Ukrainian draft Security Council resolution presented to us today. Why anti-Russian, I think, no need to explain. Just a glance at it is enough. Why anti-Ukrainian? Because this document, without a doubt, contradicts the fundamental interests of the Ukrainian people, since it is trying to save and consolidate in Ukraine the system of power that led this country to a tragedy that has been going on for at least eight years now,” he explained.

He noted that the resolution is aimed at saving representatives of the Kiev regime. Moreover, the document ignored the constant failure of the Ukrainian authorities to comply with the Minsk agreements.

As the Russian permanent representative additionally stressed, the UN resolution did not reflect the role of the West, which issued “carte blanche” to Kiev. Moreover, Western states have made the Ukrainian side a pawn of a geopolitical game, ignoring the interests of the population.

Earlier in the day, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby announced Washington’s intention to continue military assistance to Ukraine. At the same time, the representative of the US Department of Defense refused to specify what exactly the United States intends to supply to Kiev.

On February 25, on this day, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, during a conversation with US leader Joe Biden, discussed increased sanctions, specific defense support and an anti-war coalition.

On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a special operation to protect the civilian population of Donbass. After that, the Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky accused Russia of hitting the country’s military infrastructure and introduced martial law throughout Ukraine. He also said that Kyiv is breaking off diplomatic relations with Moscow and withdrawing its diplomats from the embassy.

The Russian Defense Ministry stressed that the army did not carry out air missile or artillery strikes on the cities of Ukraine. The civilian population of the country is not in danger. High-precision weapons destroy military infrastructure. As of February 25, 211 Ukrainian military installations, including American Javelin anti-tank missile systems and British NLAW, were disabled by high-precision weapons.

On February 21, Putin signed decrees recognizing the independence of the LNR and the DNR. Also, the Russian leader and the heads of both republics Leonid Pasechnik and Denis Pushilin signed agreements on friendship, cooperation and mutual assistance. The documents were ratified the next day by both the republics themselves and the Russian State Duma.

The situation in Donbass escalated on February 17. In the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, heavy shelling by Ukrainian security forces was reported, including from heavy weapons. The republics announced a general mobilization and evacuation of civilians to the territory of Russia.

Since 2014, the Ukrainian authorities have been conducting a military operation against the inhabitants of Donbass, who refused to recognize the results of the coup d’état and the new government in Ukraine. At the same time, Kyiv blames Moscow for the current situation.
