Russia Challenges West To Provide Proof Of Ukraine Invasion


Russia is speaking at the UN Security Council on the Ukrainian crisis. Here is a summary of the key points made by the Russia envoy.

  • Russian Federation isn’t aware of the reasons for the UN Security Council meeting. The deployment of Russian troops within Russian territory is not uncommon. This has not caused ‘hysterics’ before. Troop movements within Russian territory is not an act of aggression. No proof put forward to support planned Russian aggression.
  • US telling Russia to ‘de-escalate’ but US is 'trying to provoke Russian invasion of Ukraine'. No threat to invade Ukraine has ever been made. Russia has always repeated that Russia has no intention to invade.
  • Ukrainians being brainwashed with 'Russophobia' and fascist ideology. Kyiv banning Russian language which is the native language of many Ukrainian citizens. Causing an orthodox church split. Western colleagues not taking into consideration the aggression of the Ukrainian state.
  • Russian security demands are broad. Agreement to suspend NATO military deployment to Ukraine could fundamentally improve European security.
  • There is no evidence of the level of troop mobilisation (100,000+) suggested by Western media and diplomats.
  • UN did not even heed the advice of Ukrainian President to caution against tensions.
  • West and NATO and pumping Ukraine full of military equipment.
  • Crisis only has one dimension. It is a domestic Ukrainian crisis. It requires a solution within Minsk agreement. Russia has not instigated this crisis.
