UNITED NATIONS, May 2. /TASS/. The area of Russia’s embassy in Yemen came under fire in the small hours of Friday, May 1, Russia’s UN envoy Vitaly Churkin has told the media. He speculated that the loud explosion about 200 meters away from the embassy’s building in Yemen’s capital Sana’a might have been caused by a rocket.
"I have talked to our charge d’affairs. We still have some diplomats in Sana’a. He told me that last night there was a very loud explosion of an artillery shell, rocket, or big bomb just 200 meters away from our embassy," Churkin said.
He voiced serious concern over such incidents.
"When this sort of random fire, bombardments and rocket strikes happen the situation gets very dangerous and undesirable," he said.
Churkin emphasized Russia’s great concern over the humanitarian situation in Yemen. The country is running out of medical and food supplies while the sea blockade and the air operation by the United States and its allies prevents the delivery of humanitarian aid.
The UN Security Council met in session behind closed doors at Russia’s initiative on Friday to discuss Yemen. UN Deputy Secretary-General Jeffrey Feltman reviewed the situation in the country.
