Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will not be able to attend a meeting of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, demanding to issue additional documents through sanctions, which the Russian Foreign Ministry refuses to issue.

The official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, Maria Zakharova, declared it on air on the Russia-1 TV channel, UP reports.

Zakharova was emotionally outraged by the need to overcome the new sanctions imposed on Russia in Europe. "Some nonsense! What documents, what rules, what instructions? What is it about?" said the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.

The reason for the problems was that the EU imposed aviation sanctions on Russia, banning the flight of Russian aircraft, and Lavrov wanted to fly to Geneva by plane of the Russian government. Zakharova explained that because of this, the Russian delegation is required to "draw up some documents that EU countries will now come up with for those boards that have come under sanctions."

Russia will not comply with sanctions.

"It is the duty of the United Nations and the host country to ensure the work of member countries, especially in times of crisis," said the Foreign Ministry spokeswoman.

As a result, Lavrov will not be able to attend the UN summit.
