Ukraine reminds UN Security Council that Kyiv for three years in a row has been opposing Russian "hybrid war"
During a debate in the UN Security Council on conflict prevention and peace-keeping, Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine Serhiy Kyslytsia said that Ukraine has been opposing foreign military aggression in the form of "hybrid war" for the third consecutive year, an UNIAN correspondent reported.
"In a globalized world, conflict is never too small. It applies to everyone, it is necessary to provide assistance, especially to those in need. There are conflicts in Europe, too. Ukraine for three years has been fighting against foreign military aggression. In various ways, it is manifested in the form of "hybrid war," he said.
"The General Assembly adopted a resolution condemning the aggression and occupation of Crimea, but the Security Council’s attempts to stop the military aggression were blocked by the same permanent member," said Kyslytsia.
