The Russian side accuses the Ukrainian side of the intentional disruption of the project created for the facilitation of the consequences of the pandemic. The project also provided the lifting of sanctions against Russia as the Permanent Representative Office of Russia at the UN reported.
“This time, the victim of ‘determined and firm’ Ukrainian position is the projects of one of the resolution of the General Assembly aiming for coordination of the international efforts on the fight against coronavirus pandemic; over 30 countries, including Russia, became the co-authors of it,” the message said.
Ukraine is accused of the disruption of the project, which aim was to cancel the majority of the international sanctions. Russia added that it does not worry about sanctions but worries about the consequences of the pandemic. It mentioned the use by Ukraine of ‘fakes and shibboleth’ concerning the aggression from Russia.
“About anti-Russian sanctions, we ask our colleagues not to worry. We remind: we do not condemn the illegal restrictions imposed against us, we do not bargain and do not ask to lift them” the message said.
As we reported, Ukraine penalized Russia-initiated draft law of UN General Assembly on fighting coronavirus. If the Assembly passed it, Russia could have disposed of international sanctions.
