UNITED NATIONS, November 20. /TASS/. Kiev claims that a military operation it is conducting in eastern Ukraine is well in line with the United Nations Charter and meets the country’s liabilities under international law, Ukraine’s Deputy Permanent Representative at the United Nations Andrei Tsymbalyuk said on Wednesday at a United Nations Security Council meeting dedicated to anti-terrorism efforts.
“As you know, the Ukrainian government has been conducting since March an anti-terrorist operation in the country’s eastern regions. This operation fully complies with the United Nations Charter and meets Ukraine’s all liabilities under international law, including human rights norms, refugee rights and international humanitarian law,” he said. Apart from that he accused “one of Ukraine’s neighbours” of “violating its obligations in the sphere of anti-terrorism fight,” which had triggered destabilization in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions.
In reply, Russia’s Deputy Permament Representative Yebgeny Zagainov called on those present to refrain from “inappropriate intimations and interpretations,” including on issues that have no relation to the subject under discussion. “We call to use the high tribune of the Security Council for constructive participation in the discussion on the agenda but not to replicate such fabrications,” he said.
According to the latest reports of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs /OCHA/, the conflict in eastern Ukraine claimed more than 4,100 lives, more than 9,700 people were wounded. The number of forced migrants is nearing one million and about 5.2 million people stay in the conflict zone.
