Volodymyr Yelchenko appointed as Ukraine’s new ambassador in the UN
He replaces Yuri Sergeyev who has been in office since 2007
Volodymyr Yelchenko has been assigned Ukraine’s new representative in the UN. President Petro Poroshenko signed the respective decree on December 9.
Commenting on the appointment, Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said: “I’m looking forward to see Volodymyr Yelchenko heading Ukraine’s permanent delegation in the UN. Together, we will work to protect the interests of Ukraine”. According to him, Yelchenko has huge experience of working with the UN. He is highly respected in this organization, and he has unique experience of chairing the Ukrainian delegation during our membership in the UN Security Council in 2000-2001”.
Klimlin added that Yelchenko served as Ukraine’s ambassador in Russia, which could be quite useful in his new office. “He knows well all peculiarities of the Russian diplomacy. I’m sure this experience will be priceless during his service with the Ukraine’s delegation in the UN, as he will have to protect the country’s interests, sitting at one table with representative of Russia, the aggressor state”, said the Foreign Minister of Ukraine.
Volodymyr Yelchenko will replace Yuriy Sergeyev who has been in the office since 2007.
