Russia was behind the origin of the UN, and it is not for the Ukrainian authorities to decide who should be a member of the UN Security Council, said Sergey Zheleznyak, a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs.
Earlier, Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine, Elena Zerkal, called for Russia to be expelled from the UN Security Council for alleged cyber attacks by GRU agents on the servers of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and the joint investigation team investigating the case of the MN17 plane crash.
“Our country is at the origin of the United Nations, created to protect human rights and in the interests of peace. And it’s certainly not the current authorities of Ukraine, with its frankly Nazi ideology, to declare who should be a member of the UN Security Council, and who should not.” – said Zheleznyak.
“Out of habit, Kyiv hastened to Western sponsors to join the stream of indiscriminate accusations against Russia in cyber attacks, having no evidence of it and no right. Statements against our country that are inappropriate for any official of the state are heard from Ukraine counting on the approval of American and British patrons” – the deputy stressed.
