The former Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the UN, the newly appointed Ambassador to the United States, Volodymyr Yelchenko, has assured that half of Russia's employees at the UN are agents of the FSB. The Ukrainian diplomat said this in an interview with Ukrinform news agency.
“Two or three hundred Russians work in the United Nations secretariat. I think half of them are FSB agents, either explicit or open,” Yelchenko said.
According to him, this situation has developed since Soviet times, when every second worker from the USSR was a direct agent of the special services.
Yelchenko believes that the UN has a Russian agent network that affects the organization, although sometimes there are cases when Russian employees are sent to Russia, as was the case in the United States.
About 20-23 countries vote in unison with Russia against the resolutions that relate to Ukraine, and most of these delegations depend on 100 percent on the Russian Federation.
The influence of Russia in the UN is much greater than that of Ukraine and dozens of other countries, the Ukrainian diplomat noted.
As we reported, The UN General Assembly adopted a resolution that calls on the Russian Federation to stop human rights violations in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol.
