Kuleba on the UN reaction: They put water in their mouths

Jun 9, 2023

Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba has sharply criticized the United Nations' reaction to Russia's blowing up of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant dam.

According to Yevropeiska Pravda, Kuleba said this during a telethon on Friday.

According to the minister, "The UN made a very specific mistake: on the day when we had a terrorist attack and a crime of genocide, they were celebrating the Day of the Russian language, they were throwing water in their mouths about the events."


"I think if they had taken in the Dnipro water mixed with machine oil, blood, and the stench of dead animals, they might have behaved differently. But since New York is far away and the water there is different, they managed to remain silent and do nothing all day," he said.

The Foreign Minister also noted the work of the UN Office in Ukraine, which promptly mobilized a team of staff in Kherson, and after meeting with the Minister, formed two groups ready to help evacuate people from the Russian-occupied left bank of the Dnipro River.

"Therefore, the anger of Ukrainians is justified, but there is a reality and we need to work with it in the interests of our country," he concluded.
