MOSCOW, September 28. /TASS/. Russia will make a civilized response to the charges Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko made in his statement at the global development agenda summit, Russian State Duma member, former Russian envoy to the European Communities, Vasily Likhachev, told TASS.
"We’ve got to be prepared to make a civilized response to Poroshenko’s charges," he said.
Likhachev called for paying the most serious attention to Poroshenko’s claims Ukraine had allegedly fallen victim to "aggression."
"One has the impression the Ukrainian head of state is unfamiliar with the universally recognized definition of aggression that the UN General Assembly adopted back in 1974," Likhachev said.
Had Poroshenko studied the wording of this term in that document and projected it to international practices, he would have been able to see that "not a single trait of aggressive behavior is applicable to Russia."
According to TASS reports from New York Poroshenko reiterated his customary complaints about "Russian aggression." At the same time he barely touched upon the theme of global development.
Many journalists took note of the fact only one Russian delegate was present in the hall of the UN General Assembly.
"We staged a walkout during Mr. Poroshenko’s statement in protest against his outspokenly politicized and aggressive speech, which ran counter to the declared theme of the summit, formulated as global development agenda," Likhachev said.
