Further statement by Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the UN Sergiy Kyslytsya at the UN Security Council meeting

Before I switch to English I would like to say couple of lines in Russian.

(In Russian) We have become accustomed to the lies that are constantly poured on our heads in the Security Council Chamber.

Comrade Nebenzia bothered to quote an interview from a resource called Meduza.

I would like to ask Comrade Nebenzia why he does not quote it in full? Let me quote from this interview that Putin's representative wanted to use for his own purposes. I quote the words of the woman to whom he referred: "... It happened that Russian soldiers passed dry rations to the basement, and then threw a grenade there." You wanted to quote this interview, why didn't you quote it in full? It's about your humanitarian aid followed by a grenade. The interview you quoted. The same woman. Now let me switch to English.
I would like to make my further statement in response to the hypocritical questions by putin's representative.

After the video we saw with the shocking images from Bucha, Irpin, Motyzhyn and other sites, he should ask these very questions to himself.
- How have Russians got to the cruelty of Nazis?
- When did you start enjoying acting like Nazis? Killing civilians, attempting to redraw internationally recognized borders, setting the task to “finally resolve the Ukrainian issue” like Hitler attempted to “resolve the Jewish issue”?
- When did you miss the point of Russian's turning into a Nazi-style cancerous tumor. Unable and unwilling to stop expanding and bringing to neighboring nations suffering, destruction, pain and death?

I am appalled at your cynical and outright lie that you don't hit civilian targets and that's why you are moving so slowly. You hit civilian targets and you kill civilians. Shall I quote your own words from yesterday in the press-conference that you gave here, in the Headquarters? Where did you say that civilians were killed by your Army. Shall I play the video? Or shall I not? You said this is war, civilians are killed in the war. It's warfare, you said. Or, perhaps, in your mindset a children’s hospital in Mykolayiv, destroyed by the Russian strike yesterday, was a military target? Or, perhaps, the child killed as a result of the strike was a Ukrainian nationalist?

The only truth you've told is that you are not moving as you planned. And the only reason is the resistance of the Ukrainian Army and the Ukrainian people, not your smart military planning.
The Ukrainian people who realize quite clearly what “the Russian world” in reality means.

We thank the international community for their solidarity with Ukraine.

Ukraine will win in its territory and the entire world will win despite the threats that a criminal's tool and a liar throws in our faces right in the Security Council chamber.
Finally, if there is anything that we have to thank the Russian representative for, it is his acknowledgment at yesterday’s press-conference that Russia is waging war against Ukraine. War, you said several times. Not a special operation.

I consider this confession shall impact the UN assessment of what is going on in the center of Europe. Perhaps, it’s that unique moment when we should believe what the fully accredited representative says here in the United Nations. Hence once again let me remind putin’s diplomats: Ribbentrop denied knowledge of concentration camps and racial extermination policies, yet was found guilty at the Nuremberg War Crimes Trial and we know what happened to him on 16 October 1946.

Thank you.
