Vitaly Churkin noted that he considers the meeting useful for Russia. A number of countries within the structure of the UN Security Council called for the full implementation of the Minsk agreements.
Permanent Representative to the UN (quote TASS):
Despite the fact that Washington states that they are trying to resolve the crisis in Ukraine, unfortunately, this is never reflected (during discussions) in the Security Council. Otherwise, I think it was useful for us, we provided them with information about what happened.
Commenting on the convening of a Security Council meeting by Ukraine, Vitaly Churkin said:
I think it demonstrates that chaos is in Kiev. They do not know what to do with Donetsk. The Minsk agreements are very clear, but the Ukrainian authorities have no political will to do what they have to. Instead of gathering this political will, they try to divert attention to other things.
At the same time, Vitaly Churkin added that he had doubts about the prudence of the Ukrainian authorities and about their ability to control the processes going on in Ukraine.
