MOSCOW, June 15, /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Federation Council upper house is surprised by the position of leading Western members of the UN Security Council which blocked a draft resolution condemning an attack on the Russian embassy in Kiev.
“I am surprised that although the US Department of State itself denounced an attack on the Russian Embassy in Kiev, leading countries of the West - the United Stated, Great Britain and France, blocked in the UN Security Council a draft resolution condemning this attack,” the first deputy head of the upper house’s international affairs committee, Vladimir Dzhabarov, told Tass on Sunday.
Dzhabarov, who leads the house’s temporary commission monitoring the situation in Ukraine, called the attack “unprecedented for civilized nations,” noting that “such things are inadmissible as they come in direct violation of the Vienna Convention”.
“And a statement by the acting head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry targeting our president, the supreme commander-in-chief, is the most disgusting thing,” he said, qualifying it as an insult against all Russian people. “This is inadmissible,” the parliamentarian said, calling the incident outrageous.
“I think he must apologize publicly,” he said, adding that in other case “the minister allowing such statements against the head of a neighbouring state becomes simply non-handshakable”.
The senator also denounced the Ukrainian authorities for not preventing extremist sorties at the Russian embassy and expressed concern over the policy of Western nations, aimed “at any support for the Ukrainian authorities, whom the West sees as the main player in confrontation with Russia”.
