Blame Game at UN: Russia faults West for Minsk failure; US accuses Putin of aggression in Ukraine

At Monday’s Security Council meeting that Russia called on the seventh anniversary of the signing of the Minsk peace plan brokered by France and Germany, Nebenzia called claims by Ukraine and Western nations that Russia refused to implement the agreements ‘absolutely baseless.’ Nebenzia said, ‘the tragedy that has taken place in Ukraine today would not have happened, a tragedy in which the U.S. and the collective West are complicit as they try to achieve their geopolitical aims at the cost of Ukraine and the lives of its citizens.’ US Deputy Ambassador Robert Wood accused Russia of putting forward ‘significant myths and disinformation’ in its efforts to rewrite history after it invaded a sovereign nation in violation of the UN Charter.
