Kuleba explained Ukraine prevented Russia's attempt to legitimize ORDLO representatives through UN platform
Ukraine and its partners prevented Russia's attempt to legitimize ORDLO representatives using the UN Arria Security format.
Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba stated this in a comment to Ukrinform.
"The meeting (of the UN Security Council according to the Arria formula on December 2 – ed.) will be boycotted not only by Ukraine but also by the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Estonia, and Belgium. All OSCE member states but the Russian Federation, belonging to the Security Council today. This is an important signal because the OSCE is taking part in the negotiation process within the TCG," Kuleba said.
He added that because of the principled position of our partners in the UN Security Council, the Russian PR campaign will not even be broadcast on official UN resources.
"This is a simple response to Russia's attempts to manipulate international platforms and formats to spread its propaganda," he said.
Kuleba also thanked international partners, including Germany and France as members of the Normandy format, for their strong solidarity to support Ukraine.
According to Russian media, representatives of the self-proclaimed "republics" of Donbas have announced their intention to speak at a meeting of the UN Security Council according to the Arria formula on the topic: "Implementation of the Minsk Package of measures (…)," which will take place on December 2.
