"It (the draft statement) was blocked in a typical manner," the diplomat said. According to him, Lithuania, the United States, and Australia started suggesting unacceptable amendments for introduction to the text. Churkin recalled that the discontinuance of the ceasefire in the area of the airliner's crash site was a direct breach of the UNSC resolution.
