UNITED NATIONS, August 11. /TASS/. The Russian Ambassador to the UN, Vitaly Churkin considers Kiev’s decision to focus the attention of the UN Security Council on the situation in Crimea to be puzzling as Moscow sees actions of Ukrainian infiltrators in Crimea as a clear instance of sabotage and terrorism
"This was a clear act of sabotage and terrorism and I’m astonished that they raised the issue at the UN Security Council," Churkin said on Thursday before the beginning of a meeting of the Security Council on Crimea.
He said he planned reading out the Russian Foreign Ministry’s statement containing the official reaction to the detention of infiltrators.
The meeting is being held behind closed doors.
