THE UNITED NATIONS, January 4. /TASS/. Secretary General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon has received new Ukraine’s Permanent Representative Vladimir Yelchenko who handed credentials to the world organisation’s head, Secretary-General’s Spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters on Monday.

Answering a reporter’s question, Dujarric said he knew nothing about any talk between the two men and added that the ceremony was a traditional presentation of credentials.

On December 9, Yelchenko, who was Ukraine’s Ambassador to Russia, was appointed to the post of Ukraine’s envoy at the United Nations, replacing Yury Sergeyev. After his arrival in Kiev, Sergeyev, who was Ukraine’s envoy at the UN since 2007, said he had learnt about his resignation from the media.

Since January 1, 2016, Ukraine has become a non-permanent member at the UN Security Council and is expected to chair it in January 2017.

In his interview with the Apostrophe online newspaper, Yelchenko said that Ukraine would push for possible deployment of peacekeepers in Donbass at the UN Security Council. At the same time, the diplomat admitted that relevant negotiations had not started at the United Nations yet.
