Russia Shares Evidence of ‘Ukrainian Army Crimes’ at UNSC Arria Informal Formula


In an informal ‘Arria formula’ with members of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), Russian diplomats presented evidence of illegal acts by the Ukrainian military and nationalist groups, claiming it was hampering the process of evacuation of people.

It comes after Russia’s permanent representative to the United Nations, Vasily Nebenzya, said that the Ukrainian authorities and their Western sponsors were doing everything possible to prevent this sad truth from coming to light.

“We have enough reason to believe that all of these principles are systematically violated by the Ukrainian military and paramilitaries. There are many eyewitness accounts of how the Ukrainian military uses civilians as hostages and as human shields,” he said. he pointed out.

Accusing the Ukrainian army of deploying heavy weapons in residential areas and using civilians as human shields, Nebenzya asked his foreign counterparts to pay due attention to this fact.

Referring to the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, Russian diplomats showed video interviews of Ukrainian civilians who had managed to escape from the zone of hostilities.

Many testified that the Ukrainian army opened fire on the cars of those trying to use the humanitarian corridors for evacuation.

Some journalists showed their reports and interviews with residents of the Donetsk and Luhansk republics, showing how Ukrainian soldiers and members of the Azov battalion shelled houses, endangered the lives of civilians
In a statement to Tass, Italian journalist and documentary filmmaker Giorgio Bianchi said disinformation and propaganda only delayed the settlement of the conflict.

“I am a European. I don’t want to see fake news spread over Europe,” he added.

There is a big difference between the perception of events from safe locations hundreds of kilometers from the site of the conflict and what was actually happening on the ground, Tass reported, quoting Salyam Adil, the TV station’s bureau chief Lebanese company Al Mayadeen in Moscow. .

The situation was too dramatic to tolerate any attempt to spread allegations that have nothing to do with reality, he further stressed.

The war in Ukraine, which has entered its third month, has created an unprecedented humanitarian crisis with more than 5 million Ukrainians fleeing to neighboring Western countries, according to UNHCR data.
The war has also claimed nearly 3,000 civilian victims as of April 28, including no less than 70 children. (ANI)
