U.S. and U.K. Spar against Russia at UN Security Council Counter-Terrorism Meeting in India

Oct. 30, 2022 (EIRNS)—The UN Security Council Counter-Terrorism Committee met in Delhi, India on Oct. 29 and a brawl broke out over Ukraine’s strikes against Russian vessels in Sevastopol, reported the Indian Express today. Initially, France attacked Russia for the use of drones or unmanned aerial systems (UAVs), which they said France opposes and which are in violation of international law. Russia responded by accusing NATO nations of supplying drones to Kiev, and why the double standard.

“We share the concern over UAS being used in different regions. We know that Kiev regime is supplied with those instruments by Western regimes, including Great Britain and France ... a massive attack on the city of Sevastopol took place ... with the use of UAS and with the direct participation of Great Britain. Luckily Sevastopol city managed to react in a quick manner. We believe all of our efforts should be directed at preventing misuse of UAS by terrorists,”

said the Russian representative whom the daily did not name.

Both the (also unnamed) U.S. and U.K. representatives tried to deflect, saying that Russia is to blame for all violence in Ukraine, end of story. To which the Russians responded again:

“We are indeed at loss as to why the response of our Western colleagues was so nervous and excited.... [T]oday’s terrorist attack on the Sevastopol harbor was concocted by British engineers. The official information is that the preparation for this terrorist attack as well as the training of the militia that exercised this terrorist attack was exercised in Chekov. And it all was managed by the British military engineers. As a result, civil infrastructure suffered,”

he said.

The Russian representative continued, accusing the Western nations of double standards, saying, “I am convinced that in the near future, the world is going to understand the entire degree of hypocrisy of the Western countries that supply weapons in massive volumes to Kiev.... And may I highlight that these weapons are also channeled to the international terrorist organizations,” according to Indian Express.
