Russia should be deprived of ability to produce weapons - Ukraine's envoy at UN Security Council meeting
Due to the latest massive Russian attack on December 29, Ukraine, along with 30 other states, requested an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council
Ukraine's representative to the United Nations, Serhiy Kyslytsia, announced that an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council regarding Russia's missile and drone attacks will be held on Friday, December 29, at 11:00 p.m. Kyiv time (4:00 p.m. Eastern time).
"We request an urgent meeting of the Security Council in the format of a briefing on the latest attacks on Ukraine by the Russian Federation," he said.
Earlier, Ukraine's Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba announced the convening of a meeting of the UN Security Council.
"Ukraine, together with three dozen UN member states, has requested the Ecuadorian presidency to convene an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council regarding Russia's missile and drone attack, which led to a large number of civilian casualties and destruction of civilian infrastructure," the Ukrainian Foreign Minister said.
During the UN Security Council meeting, Ukraine's Permanent Representative Serhiy Kyslytsia described Russian UN representative Vasily Nebenzya as a person "with an amputated conscience and cut off dignity."
"I have nothing to say to the Russian representative here in this hall," the Permanent Representative emphasized. "Like his Moscow leaders, he is a man with an amputated conscience and cut off dignity.
According to Kyslytsia, "all aggressors have always understood only the language of force in response to their crimes - everything else was perceived only as weakness and encouragement to further aggression."
He noted that the Russian society, which is under the influence of propaganda, is in full solidarity with the "criminal Kremlin regime" regarding the continuation of the war with Ukraine.
"They are full of hatred for most of the world. Not only to Ukraine, no matter how much those who are inclined to the policy of appeasement convince themselves otherwise," the Permanent Representative noted.
Kyslytsia explained that the attacks on Ukraine will not stop as long as the Russians have the resources to do so. The aggressor country will continue to attack Ukraine, the global security architecture and the international order based on the UN Charter.
"There is only one way out - to deprive Russia of the ability to produce weapons, finance its military aggression and threaten the world," he concluded.
On the night of December 29, Russia launched a massive air strike on Ukraine: it launched several groups of Shahed drones and in the morning terrorists launched missiles. They hit high-rise buildings, educational institutions, a shopping center, and a maternity hospital.
