UNITED NATIONS, June 17, /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s Acting Foreign Minister Andrei Deshchytsya does not exist for Russia any more, Russia’s ambassador to the UN, Vitaly Churkin said Monday as he commented the Deshchytsya’s obscene expressions in public addressed to President Vladimir Putin.
As an acting minister Deshchytsya had only one function, namely, to translate the U.S. instructions into the Ukrainian language, Churkin said.
“He doesn’t exist for us anymore,” he said. “And the loss isn’t very big.”
Russia’s embassy in Kiev was assaulted by a mob of radicals in Kiev Saturday. Andrei Deshchytsya, who came to the site, took the liberty of making obscene remarks on the Russian leadership.
The scene was caught on camera and went international via social networks in no time.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said somewhat later he had “nothing to talk about to a personage named Deshchytsya anymore.
