While the scandal of President Yoon Seok-yeol’s profane language does not subside easily in Korea and causes a ripple that is not small in the United States, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said during a special meeting of the UN Security Council on the Ukraine war on the 22nd (local time), Volodymyr Zelensky Ukraine. He called the president a “dog XX” and swears at him. He was hesitant about the diplomatic disrespect of entering just before his order of speech and then leaving like the wind after he had finished his speech.

According to US NBC News, Lavrov showed up an hour and a half late for the meeting that started at 10 a.m. U.S. Secretary of State Tony Blincoln was eager to fill the Russian soil, but he entered after Blincoln’s remarks and started his own speech just two minutes later.

He reiterated his previous position that “the responsibility for the war lies with Ukraine” and referred to President Zelensky as “a dog”. “The policy of the US and the West toward Zelensky is (albeit favorable) to us,” he said clearly.

Regarding the annexation of the referendums held in the four Russian-occupied territories in Ukraine on the 23rd and 27th, Lavrov said, “Zelensky made threatening remarks to Russians in a media interview in August, which led to It was a measure that allowed residents to join Russia,” he said.

Opposite him was Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleva, sitting and listening. But Minister Lavrov literally left the meeting room like the wind before Kuleva began to speak.

Kuleva suppressed his anger as much as possible, saying Russia was “unscrupulous” and said that “Russian diplomats are directly sympathetic to instigating and covering up crimes with lies.” “Russians think they can do anything,” he said. “I also believe that we have the right to terrorize the world because of nuclear weapons.” He, of course, didn’t leave out the words “they must be responsible for all of this.”

Also, regarding the increase in troops due to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s mobilization order, Kuleva said, “Putin himself has informed the world that he is defeated. said. “All members of the Security Council must express a clear stand against the reckless use of nuclear weapons,” he said.

“If Russia’s territorial integrity is threatened, of course, we will mobilize all means to protect our territory and its people,” Putin said the day before. You should know,” he threatened.

“Only one person started this war, so he can stop the war,” Blincoln said.

A U.S. government official said, “Lavrov would not have been able to bear the repeated hearings of the war in Ukraine,” CNN reported.

However, China’s State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi emphasized that “the resumption of direct dialogue without preconditions is the top priority,” but expressed a difference of view with the West, saying, “Investigations into human rights violations should be conducted objectively based on facts, not politicized.” .
