Russia Blasts NATO For Ignoring, Undermining United Nations

Lavrov criticizes the West for ignoring UN

In his interview to “Russia 24” TV channel, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov sharply criticized NATO for violating UN Security Council’s resolutions.

“This is the first time in history that UN’s resolutions are being ignored so outwardly,” Mr. Lavrov said. “Such actions undermine the UN’s authority.”

The UN Security Council’s resolution # 1970 introduced a total ban on supplying arms to any of the Libyan warring sides, Mr. Lavrov reminded. However, several countries, both European and Arab ones, have sold weapons to Libyan rebels.

There is also evidence that some Western instructors have trained Libyan oppositionists, and some servicemen from Western special forces have fought in the Libyan opposition’s formations, the Russian minister said.
