Russian UN mission: West sabotaged talks on Moscow’s biolaboratories resolution

According to Dmitry Polyansky, First Deputy Permanent Representative of Russia to the World Organization, Moscow heard from "former Western partners only old theses about Russian propaganda and allegations that the evidence presented is allegedly not convincing enough"

UNITED NATIONS, November 3. /TASS/. Western delegations virtually sabotaged the talks on Moscow’s draft resolution on US biological laboratories in Ukraine, Russia’s First Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Dmitry Polyansky said at the UNSC meeting on Wednesday.

During the two rounds of expert consultations on the draft resolution, which suggests the creation of a Security Council’s commission to investigate into the activities of US biological laboratories in Ukraine, the Russian delegation heard "from former Western partners only old points on Russian propaganda and the statements that the evidence presented by us allegedly carries insufficient weight," the diplomat said.

"Meanwhile, all those conclusions were made single-handedly, preempting any findings of the UN Security Council and, in fact, substituting the decisions of the key UN body, which is responsible for maintaining the global peace and security, with their biased estimations. We regret that our Western colleagues virtually sabotaged the negotiation process on the draft resolution," he noted.
