UNITED NATIONS, November 24. /TASS/. Ukrainian nationalists have launched mass repressions against local population on the right bank of the Dnieper River, Russian Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vasily Nebenzya said on Wednesday.
"We thoroughly record all evidence of crimes committed by Ukrainian armed units, including those deployed in Russia’s new regions, which are temporarily under their control," he said at a meeting of the UN Security Council. "Ukrainian nationalists have launched mass repressions against the local population on the Dnieper right bank. A representative of the Ukrainian authorities, Lugovaya, warned beforehand that Ukrainian troops "will shoot to kill traitor as dog." A curfew has been imposed as a smoke screen."
"Despite the fact that the Kiev authorities are trying to keep an information blockade in respect of the Kherson Region, there appear bloodcurdling photos of Ukrainian militants tying people who collaborated with the Russian military to lamp posts. This was how Nazis tortured Soviet citizens during World War II," the Russian diplomat noted, adding that the goal of such actions is to intimidate the Kiev regime opponents.
"Fearing violence, people have to chant Nazi slogans and raise outstretched arms in Nazi salute, as Ukrainian militants do," Nebenzya noted. "Such videos were aired by CNN, after which Kiev stripped journalists of the TV channel of their accreditation. The similar thing was done to Sky News journalists.".
