UNITED NATIONS, September 19. /TASS/. The UN Security Council meeting on September 20, which will be attended by Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, will yield few results, Russia's First Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations Dmitry Polyansky said in an interview with TASS.
"At this meeting on September 20, the West will promote their position that punishing Russia is necessary, and that the only solution to the Ukrainian crisis may be Russia's actual capitulation. They will very certainly push Zelensky's peace plan to some extent, though they have been doing so less and less recently. Of course, Zelensky will participate in this show and will try to play the lead role," Polyansky said.
"However, this will not change our current reality. This reality is tied to the fact that a significant part of the international community, an increasingly significant part, recognizes that the Ukrainian crisis is complex in nature and that there are a number of reasons that must be eliminated in order to achieve a long-term settlement," he said.
According to him, "they want peace in Ukraine, not to damage and weaken Russia, as Western states do.".
