While some leaders – mostly Western politicians – who have spoken at the United Nations General Assembly over the past week have focused on criticizing Russia for its special military operation in Ukraine, the situation was different: Chinese, Indians, Vietnamese, Thais and other leaders who took to the stage on Saturday did not use the same damning rhetoric regarding Moscow’s actions in Ukraine as the Dutch, Belgian or American leaders. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi focused on his country’s achievements in economic, human rights protection and multilateralism. Unlike US leader Joe Biden, European Council President Charles Michel or Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte who all referred to the so-called “rules-based international order” in their speeches, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said his nation would prefer to adhere to international law: Beijing’s position on the issue resembles what Russian leaders have been talking about for a year. Moscow’s top diplomat Sergei Lavrov, who also delivered a speech to the United Nations General Assembly on Saturday, once again underlined Russia’s position in a multipolar world order, calling for a democratic and just world, without hegemony, without neo-Nazism or neo-colonialism, and slamming the concept of a “rules-based” world order. of State against President Yanukovych in kyiv in 2014: the subject of Ukraine dominated Sergei Lavrov’s press conference which was also held on Saturday at the UN headquarters. Asked by an American journalist about the possibility of settling the conflict, the Russian diplomat said that Moscow had already tried to participate in direct talks with kyiv in the spring of 2022, but that the outcome had been sabotaged by the United States and the EU: On his bilateral meetings on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, Sergei Lavrov said that while Moscow was prepared for all sorts of contacts at the event, many leaders were apparently afraid of to establish such contacts, or worse – were forbidden by EU officials to talk to the head of Russian diplomacy: Russian, Indian, South African, Chinese and Brazilian diplomats had numerous meetings with Sergei Lavrov on the sidelines of the main UN event, including the BRICS talks, which seemed to be a powerful club of politicians in mind with the BRICS countries representing around 40% of the world’s population. Their position on the Ukrainian issue was reflected in a statement calling for peaceful talks between Russia and Ukraine. Among the others who chose to communicate openly with Russia’s top diplomat were representatives from Cuba, Venezuela, Serbia, Hungary, Bahrain, Mexico, the United Arab Emirates and other nations. On Saturday, Sergei Lavrov concluded his visit to the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly. .

The Russian foreign minister, who spent five days in New York to attend the United Nations General Assembly, delivered a speech on Saturday and shared the results of his side meetings with the media.

US ‘Prime Criminal and Violator’ of UN Charter, Analyst Tells Biden’s ‘Astonishing Lies’ to UNGA

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi highlighted his country’s achievements in the fields of economy, human rights protection and multilateralism.

Unlike US leader Joe Biden, European Council President Charles Michel or Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte who all referred to the so-called “rules-based international order” in their speeches, senior Chinese diplomat Wang Yi said that his nation rather adhere to international law:

“China has maintained the international order. We are committed to the principles of the Charter of the United Nations, the international system centered on the United Nations and the international order based on international law.

Beijing’s stance on the issue sounds like what Russian leaders have been talking about for years. Moscow’s top diplomat Sergei Lavrov, who also delivered a speech to the United Nations General Assembly on Saturday, once again underlined Russia’s position in a multipolar world order, calling for a democratic and just world, without hegemony, without neo-Nazism or neo-colonialism, and to criticize the concept of a “rules-based” world order.

Sergei Lavrov has also focused on the root causes of the conflict in Ukraine, blaming the incitement to violence on the United States and its Western allies, which he holds responsible for unleashing a coup. State against President Yanukovych in Kyiv in 2014:

“At the request of the United States and the EU, we supported former Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych’s agreements with the opposition on the settlement of the crisis in 2014” – said Lavrov – “These agreements were guaranteed by Germany, Poland and France, but overnight they were dissolved by the ringleaders of a bloody putsch, who humiliated the European mediators.

The subject of Ukraine dominated Sergei Lavrov’s press conference, which was also held at UN headquarters on Saturday. Asked by an American journalist about the possibility of settling the conflict, the Russian diplomat said that Moscow had already tried to participate in direct talks with kyiv in the spring of 2022, but that the outcome had been sabotaged by the United States and the EU:

“We had a meeting in Istanbul in March, where we were presented with a document that sets out ‘the principles of the settlement’ – said Lavrov – “We responded positively to this document, and we used these principles as the basis of a treaty. We gave it to the Ukrainian side. But then Bucha came along, and we would like to see the names of the victims of that event, and then the Americans told Ukraine that they shouldn’t accept Russia’s offer now, and that they should first achieve some success on the battlefield. And [Josep] Borrel, who has to deal with diplomacy – he’s the best diplomat [of the EU] – later said that this conflict should be resolved by the victory of Ukraine on the battlefield.

Referring to his bilateral meetings on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, Sergei Lavrov said that while Moscow was prepared for all sorts of contacts at the event, many leaders were apparently afraid to make such contacts , or worse – were banned by the EU officials from talking to the head of Russian diplomacy:

“As I told you, they banned the Cypriot president from coming to the talks. A representative belonged to one of the “five” [nuclear] United States, the other was also from a highly respected country – they contacted us as well. They timidly even conspiratorially ask for a confidential meeting. I said – of course, but they didn’t come. Same story with another prime minister. So let’s not call ourselves quitters.

Russian, Indian, South African, Chinese and Brazilian diplomats had numerous meetings with Sergei Lavrov on the sidelines of the main UN event, including the BRICS talks, which appeared to be a powerful club of politicians sharing the same ideas, the BRICS nations representing about 40% of the world’s population. Their position on the Ukrainian issue was reflected in a statement calling for peaceful talks between Russia and Ukraine.

Others who chose to communicate openly with Russia’s top diplomat included representatives from Cuba, Venezuela, Serbia, Hungary, Bahrain, Mexico, the United Arab Emirates and other nations. .

On Saturday, Sergei Lavrov concluded his visit to the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly.
