UNITED NATIONS, January 22. /TASS/. Russia’s Ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin said Ukrainian Prime Minister’s Arseny Yatsenyuk’s statement that “the Soviet Union invaded Ukraine and Germany during World War II” was “an ideological subversion”
Speaking at the UN Security Council on Wednesday, Churkin expressed his indignation that “enlightened Europe” had not responded to the Ukrainian official’s words.
“Actually, he (Yatsenyuk) would like to see Ukraine under Nazi occupation,” the Russian diplomat said. “But enlightened Europe seems to sew up its mouth. And it is strange that someone pretending to be civilized can tolerate ideological subversions of this kind.”.
