MOSCOW, February 22. /TASS/. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavel Klimkin, who has called for stripping Russia of the veto power in the UN Security Council, should focus on addressing problems in his home country first, and not try to "better" the performance of international mechanisms, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told a news briefing on Wednesday.
"I would like to share with him a piece of advice: put your own home in order first, make everything tidy, settle all issues, and then undertake to improve the operation of international mechanisms. The international mechanisms have shown pretty good performance so far without Mr. Klimkin’s intervention," Zakharova said.
"The Ukrainian foreign minister should focus on problems in his home country. As soon as the issues that the whole international community has to deal with have been resolved, then it might be possible to hear his opinion on other matters," she stated.
At last Tuesday’s meeting of the UN Security Council Klimkin called for stripping Russia of the veto power in the UN Security Council in considering the situation in Ukraine. It argued that Moscow was a party to the conflict in Donbass.
