THE UNITED NATIONS, October 29. /TASS/. A humanitarian crisis and casualties in troubled east Ukraine resulted from Kiev authorities’ incapability to settle domestic problems in civilized way and from a large-scale military operation they launched, Russian Deputy Permanent Representative at the United Nations Organization Yevgeny Zagainov said on Tuesday.
At a meeting of the UN Security Council, he replied to Ukrainian diplomat’s statements that the current crisis in east Ukraine was triggered by “a Russian act of aggression.”
“Once again our partners seek to put all upside down and to blame Russia for those after-effects that were caused by Kiev authorities’ incapability or unwillingness to resolve domestic problems in a civilized way and through nationwide dialogue. Not some mythical 'Russian aggression' led to hundreds of civilian victims, including women, and a massive flow of refugees and externally displaced people, but a large-scale punitive operation launched by the country’s authorities against south-eastern regions characterized with unselective and excessive use of force," Zagainov said.
