UNITED NATIONS, April 10. /TASS/. The West is interested in protracting the crisis in Ukraine rather than ending it, Russia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vasily Nebenzya said on Monday.
"The issue of arms supplies to Kiev is taking on a strategic dimension, since the range of military products is permanently expanding. In other words, in this particular case some states are not merely violating their commitments but recognize no reasonable limits, despite the extremely serious risks of escalation of the crisis in Ukraine," he said at a meeting of the UN Security Council on risks stemming from violations of agreements on supplies of military products.
"However, the West is not interested in ending the crisis in Ukraine. It is interested in dragging it out and says so without remorse," the Russian diplomat stressed.
