What A Shame! Russia’s UN Interrupts A Minute of Silence For Ukraine


The United Nations Security Council held a minute’s silence on Friday, after Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba accused Russia of genocide against his country.

However, the silence was interrupted by Russia’s UN envoy, who insisted that it was held for ‘all of those who perished’ in the conflict – including those since 2014.

‘All lives are priceless,’ Russia’s UN envoy Vasily Nebenzya said, who in the same session in New York City accused the West of using the security council to push its own agenda.

Kuleba proposed a minute’s silence to honour the ‘victims of the aggression’ during Friday’s session – to mark the one-year anniversary of Vladimir Putin‘s invasion.

But as he and other members of the assembly stood up, the Russian ambassador began to tap his microphone. As dismayed envoys looked on, he then insisted: ‘We are getting up on our feet to honour the memory of all victims of what has happened in Ukraine, starting in 2014.’
