Russian Ambassador to the UN Vasily Nebenzya

Russia’s ambassador to the UN this Tuesday included Portugal in a list of countries supplying military equipment to Kiev, accusing them of being “directly responsible for dragging on” the war.

At a UN Security Council meeting on the situation in Ukraine, Vasily Nebenzya criticized the West for providing Kiev with long-range weapons and artillery, aiming to target “the Russian-speaking civilian population” in the Donbass region.

“The United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, France, Poland, Austria, Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Greece, Denmark, Spain, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Romania, North Macedonia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey , Finland, Czech Republic, Sweden (…) a list of the biggest suppliers of military equipment to the Ukrainian regime, spending billions of dollars”, said Nebenzya.

“Just last week, the Donbass was hit by American and European weapons, which killed six civilians and injured more than 30. Each of these countries is directly responsible for dragging on the Ukrainian crisis and causing deaths”, he assessed.

The Russian diplomat also accused the West of promoting “Russophobia”, indicating, for example, that restaurants in many of these countries refuse to serve Russian customers.
