Russia Security Council presidency a ‘slap in the face’

RUSSIA’S presidency of the UN Security Council (UNSC) for the month of April is “a slap in the face to the international community”, Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said today.  

“I urge the current UNSC members to thwart any Russian attempts to abuse its presidency,” Kuleba said at the start of Russia’s tenure of the body’s rotating presidency.
