The permanent representative of the Russian Federation said that when they came to counseling, he began to share his concerns with members of the security Council, and, as it turned out, the Power went to the press and, not hearing it, began to criticize Russia, including for the convening of this meeting.
"And when they entered after my speech (I must say, her assistant had to say, that Americans understand all of what happened) said that she was not interested, so to speak, had to listen to what I say and that it's all "trick" and so on", - said Churkin.

"In these circumstances, and I was interested to hear how she is going to accuse us of all mortal sins, and I turn left too, leaving my Deputy, and also talked to the press", he concluded.
