UN secretary-general under Western pressure on Ukraine – Russia

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov claims Antonio Guterres has made statements outside his remit under the UN charter

Speaking with the United Nations special envoy for Syria, Geir Pedersen, on Wednesday, Russia’s foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov, has lamented what he described as the UN secretary-general bowing to Western pressure over the situation in Ukraine.

Lavrov said that, much to Moscow’s regret, it has turned out that the UN secretary-general “has yielded to Western pressure, and, in recent days, made several remarks regarding the situation in eastern Ukraine that are unbecoming to his status and fall outside his remit under the UN charter.”
