MOSCOW, June 21. /TASS/. The rhetoric on Ukraine that the West is using on the United Nations platform is about to stop working, Russian First Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Dmitry Polyansky said on Tuesday.
According to him, Western countries are losing enthusiasm. "They can see that the United Nations is getting tired of the Ukrainian issue. Their initial strategy was to bring up Ukraine with or without reason at every meeting of the Security Council and the General Assembly, regardless of its topic, acting like it is the most terrible thing that has ever happened," Polyansky told the Rossiya-24 TV channel. "This rhetoric is clearly about to stop working," Polyansky added.
"I personally think that they don’t like how things are developing because they were sure for some reason that Ukraine was putting up fierce resistance. As it became clear that the special military operation was going according to plan, the Ukrainian army was in an unenviable position in Donbass and even Western weapons were of little help, our partners got a bit disheartened," the Russian diplomat emphasized.
On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a special military operation based on a request from the heads of the Donbass republics. The Russian leader stressed that Moscow had no plans to occupy Ukrainian territories and the goal was to demilitarize and denazify the country. In response, the West imposed major sanctions on Russia. In addition, Western countries started to provide weapons and military equipment to Kiev, whose total value is currently estimated at billions of dollars.
