UNITED NATIONS, March 29, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin has said that some member-countries of the UN Security Council looked determined to blow the current events in and around Ukraine out of proportion.
“Some of our colleagues in the SC have been trying to inflate the situation in Ukraine to the dimensions of an international crisis,” Churkin said after a Security Council meeting behind closed doors on Friday.
He warned that such actions would by no means help bring about a settlement.
Churkin agreed that the term crisis was very appropriate only to what was happening in Ukraine, where the internal political situation was grave. The Russian envoy called for disarming the radicals operating in the country and for restoring the constitutional order.
