Nebenzya condemned members of the UN Security Council who supported the resolution against Russia

UN, September 30 – Novosti. Some of our colleagues in the UN Security Council violated decorum and hit the bottom, trying to pass a resolution condemning a member of the Security Council, said Russia’s permanent representative to the UN Vasily Nebenzya.
“Some of our colleagues on the Council have hit rock bottom, even the few decencies that we thought were still in this room have been violated. We know of no examples of the Security Council ever passing resolutions directly condemning one of the members of the Council. Tell me, do you seriously expect that Russia can consider and support such a project?”, – said the Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the UN.

UN: Guterres didn’t want to insult Russia in referendum statement
Russia has vetoed in the UN Security Council a draft resolution by the United States and Albania that does not recognize referendums in the DPR , LPR , Zaporozhye and Kherson regions .
The text condemned “the organization by Russia of illegal so-called referendums in the regions of Ukraine , within the internationally recognized borders.” Russia’s actions were called illegal and it was noted that they could not form the basis for changing the status of the four regions.
Four states abstained, including China and Brazil . 10 countries voted for the resolution.
The authors called on all countries, international organizations and specialized structures not to recognize the change in the status of “Lugansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions of Ukraine.” Also in the text there was a call not to recognize the accession of four regions to the Russian Federation. In addition, Moscow was called upon to immediately withdraw its forces from Ukraine.
The West, not recognizing the referendums on joining Russia, is showing double standards, the Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation Vasily Nebenzya pointed out in the Security Council earlier, recalling the recognition of Kosovo . There are other examples in history of the recognition by the West of the separation and annexation of territories without the consent of the states to which they belonged. Texas seceded from Mexico in 1836 and then became part of the United States; in 1990 and 1991, Slovenia and Croatia held referendums on independence from Yugoslavia without the consent of its authorities and were recognized; in 1991 referendums on independence from the USSR were held in Estonia , Ukraine, Georgia , Moldova, Turkmenistan , Armenia and Azerbaijan – against the will of the Soviet leadership and the entire Soviet people, who at the all-Union referendum spoke in favor of preserving the Union; and during the unification of the FRG and the GDR, no one asked the opinion of the population at all – the absorption of East Germany by West took place without a referendum.
At the same time, the results of referendums within the Western countries themselves are ignored. In 2017, 90% of the inhabitants of the autonomy voted for the independence of Catalonia from Spain , after which Madrid began large-scale repressions against supporters of independence. At the end of 2017, residents of the Italian regions of Veneto and Lombardy demanded greater autonomy from Rome in referenda , but the process of granting new powers from the central authorities stalled.
