Russia tried to prevent the UN SC meeting on Kakhovka HPP

Jun 7, 2023

The UN Security Council will convene a meeting at the request of Ukraine due to the explosion of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant by the Russian occupiers. This was announced by Ukraine's Permanent Representative to the UN, Sergiy Kyslytsya. Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba spoke about how Russia tried to prevent the convening of this meeting on the air of the United News telethon.


The UN Security Council meeting will take place today at 23:00 Kyiv time.

The meeting will discuss the blowing up of the Kakhovka hydroelectric dam in the temporarily occupied Kherson region.

Foreign Minister Kuleba said that Russia "tried to put a spoke in the wheel" of Ukraine regarding this meeting.

"Also, [Russia] began to imitate that it was Ukraine that allegedly destroyed the dam, and also began to demand the convening of the Security Council," he said.

Kuleba noted that Ukraine managed to convene a meeting of the UN Security Council in less than 24 hours.

"The fact that we were able to convene the Security Council shows that three of the permanent members of the Security Council - the United States, France, and the United Kingdom, representatives of our main partners are on our side and support us in this situation," he said.
