Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sergei Lavrov, will chair a meeting of the Security Council of the United Nations (UN), in New York, USA , this April, when Russia assumes the monthly presidency of the international body, advanced the spokeswoman for the ministry, quoted by AFP.”A key event of the Russian presidency (of the Security Council) will be a high-level open debate on effective multilateralism through the defense of the principles of the UN Charter”, advanced Maria Zakharova, in a press conference. However, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Dmytro Kuleba, reacted to this announcement, considering it “a joke in bad taste”.”The Russian presidency of the UN Security Council is a bad joke. Russia has usurped its place, it is waging a colonial war, its leader is a war criminal wanted by the ICC [ International Criminal Court] for child abduction. The world cannot be a safe place with Russia on the United Nations Security Council”, said the minister in a publication on the social network Twitter. Russia (one of the five permanent members of the Council with veto power) assumes the rotating monthly presidency of the body, which has the capacity to pass binding resolutions. NATO and European Union countries rushed to provide financial, military and humanitarian support to help Ukraine cope with Russia’s invasion The invading country, on the other hand, was the target of consecutive (and concerted) sanctions packages applied by Kyiv partners.So far, more than 8,000 civilians have died and more than 13,000 have been injured as a result of the fighting on the ground, according to United Nations (UN) calculations.(RM/NMinuto)Source:Rádio Moçambique Online
