After Russia’s massive missile attack on November 23 and President Volodymyr Zelensky’s request to hold an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council, the Russians did not even try to “play the game” with a preliminary vote on the online inclusion of Zelensky. Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said this on the air of a nationwide telethon.

The head of the Foreign Ministry stressed that on November 23, at the initiative of Zelensky, a meeting of the UN Security Council was convened, and it took place on the same day.

“Let me give you one interesting detail from the diplomatic behind the scenes. In order to get the consent of the UN Security Council to the online inclusion of the president of Ukraine, usually Russia tries to play a combination of voting – that is, to demand a vote, and not an automatic decision that the president has the right to apply online,” – Kuleba said.

However, yesterday, according to the minister, support for this meeting and Zelensky’s speech in the Security Council was so high that the Russian Federation did not even try to request a vote.

“The Russians realized that they would not be able to play this voting game again and did not even touch on this issue,” Kuleba said.

  • Yesterday, Zelensky instructed the Ukrainian ambassador to the UN to request an urgent meeting of the UN Security Council in connection with a massive Russian missile attack. The meeting started at 23:00 Kyiv time.
  • Speaking at the meeting, Zelensky said that it is necessary for all countries that support the UN Charter to react to Russian missile attacks on civilian targets. He demanded that the Security Council give a clear assessment of the actions of the terrorist state and proposed the adoption of a resolution condemning any form of energy terrorism.
