The Russian Ambassador to the UN, Vasily Nebenzia, commenting on the accusations of the foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin in Russia about the violation of the Budapest Memorandum, urged the Ukrainian diplomat to talk about the situation in his country at every meeting of the security Council of the United Nations.

Charges Klimkin

On the eve of a Ministerial meeting of the UN Security Council on DPRK. The meeting was attended by the foreign Ministers of the five countries members of the Council and Vice Minister of South Korea. The Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin in his speech called the DPRK a «client» of Russia, which makes a «dangerous imbalance» in the international security system. While Klimkin tried to focus everyone’s attention on the problem of the «continued occupation of the territory of Ukraine, a country with nuclear weapons and Russian military aggression against Ukraine.»

According to the Ukrainian diplomat, the Russian authorities had violated the Budapest Memorandum and «miscellaneous fixed on paper and are not fixed commitments.» This state of Affairs, as noted Klimkin, has created a «climate of impunity».

In addition, the head of the foreign Ministry of Ukraine has announced a «significant portion» of sanctions against Russia. However, he did not specify who will impose restrictive measures and the basis for his statement.

The debate in the security Council

After Klimkin said Russia’s permanent representative to the sebenza and the Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine joined the debate. In particular, the Russian diplomat urged the Ukrainian colleague in the future to address the agenda in the UN security Council.

«I would like Minister Klimkin, who was speaking here today to recommend to highlight their presence the Security Council meeting, where the presentation of their legends about what happened and what is happening in Ukraine is at least in a remote degree to fit the agenda of this body,» — said Nebenzia.

The head of Ukraine’s foreign Ministry protested to the Russian Ambassador, stating that the situation with North Korea due to the fact that Russia «has violated the Budapest Memorandum and miscellaneous fixed on paper and not fixed obligations, which created an atmosphere of impunity».
Nebesa, in turn, noted that it is not going to join the «debate on the merits» with the Ukrainian diplomat.

«I am glad that today there is a lot of people, because they had the opportunity to see firsthand the disrespect of the Ukrainian delegation to the UN security Council and other member countries,» — said the Russian permanent representative.

«Ignorant rudeness»

In the state Duma also said the Ukrainian diplomat about Russia’s violation of the Budapest Memorandum.

«I’m not surprised Klimkin decided to meddle with another Ukrainian «obidnoe» to Russia when discussing the UN security Council the issues of the Korean settlement. Ignorant rudeness is the only trump card of domestic and foreign policy of the current Kiev regime. To not allow the world to forget about its existence, Poroshenko and Klimkina ready for any clumsy farce based on pity and handouts from Western donors,» — said state Duma Deputy Zheleznyak in an interview with RT.

According to him, Klimkin’s statement on Russia’s violation of the Budapest Memorandum discreditied Ukrainian diplomat. The MP also reminded the foreign Minister that the parties have not ratified the agreement and it has not entered into force.

«Therefore refer to it one who calls himself a diplomat, shameful,» he added.
