UNITED NATIONS, June 07 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia is not revoking its draft of a UN Security Council resolution on the humanitarian situation in Ukraine although the Western countries’ attitude to it is outspokenly negative, Russian UN envoy Vitaly Churkin told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“The resolution remains on the table,” he said.
According to the senior Russian diplomat there had been no noticeable breakthrough in discussions over the document at the UN Security Council yet.
“Nothing new so far,” he said. Simultaneously Russia was discussing the current events in Ukraine with UN Secretariat officials, including UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Valerie Amos.
“I had a word with Amos yesterday, we were told that at this point they have no information about the humanitarian situation in the east of Ukraine. They will keep gathering it,” Churkin said. “They have two people in Ukraine. Also, they said that their representative in Astana is addressing this issue, too.”
On June 2, Russia presented a draft resolution containing a demand for early termination of hostilities in south-eastern Ukraine and for creation of humanitarian corridors that would allow for evacuating civilian population to safety and delivering humanitarian supplies to the affected regions. As soon as the draft was distributed among the UN Security Council members Churkin speculated that the work on it would be no easy. At the very first session, he said the “Western partners” took an unconstructive stance and “said things that were clearly leading to the issue’s politicization.
