UNITED NATIONS, September 28. /TASS/. Ukraine’s delegation has left the United Nations General Assembly during the speech of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
On Sunday, the Russian delegation left the United Nations General Assembly hall during Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s speech at the UN summit on sustainable development. "We left the meeting hall in protest against his openly politicized and aggressive speech which had nothing to do with the summit’s topic," a top-ranking Russian diplomat told TASS late on Sunday.
One Russian diplomat however remained in the hall. When asked why this diplomat stayed, the source said, "The Russian side is in the habit of heeding its opponents and not ignoring their words."
