Russia to assume monthly presidency of UN Security Council

United Nations, Jul 1 (Prensa Latina) Russia will assume the presidency of the United Nations Security Council amid heated debates on the end of conflicts in Gaza and Sudan, and the recent terrorist threats in Russia.

Moscow will present its work agenda just a week after its permanent representative at the United Nations, Vassily Nebenzia, denounced the international community’s silence after the Ukrainian attack on a beach in Sevastopol, where four people were killed and more than a hundred injured.

In statements to the press, the diplomat stated that he was not surprised by the silence of the media linked to the West when denouncing the use of US-made weapons during the attack.

“The fact that the United States is directly involved in this crime is beyond any doubts,” added the diplomat, who confirmed the use of ATACMS missiles provided by the US and armed with cluster munitions.

“Washington and its allies foster a neo-Nazi regime in Kiev and encourage their puppets in Kiev to commit terrorist acts against civilians,” he added.

Nebenzia also described the UN statements on events like this as a double standard, and insisted on the lack of a meaningful response when it comes to Russian civilians’ lives.
