Ukraine ‘outraged’ by UN chief’s remarks on Russia

UNITED NATIONS- Ukraine’s UN ambassador said Thursday he is “completely outraged” by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s comments in a speech saying Russia has a critical role to play in ending the conflict in his country. Volodymyr Yelchenko said said Ban’s prepared comments for the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum in Russia show he has lost “any moral right” to say anything about the conflict in Ukraine. He said he doesn’t understand how the UN chief “can say such things which sort of praise the role of Russia in settling the conflict in Ukraine when the Russian Federation is the main player in aggressing Ukraine and in keeping this conflict boiling.”
