About the same time the permanent representative of Ukraine to the United Nations Volodymyr Yelchenko said on air of the channel “Direct”.
“I think that we have to make serious conclusions from the perspective of Belarus, with Kazakhstan’s positions. If you can still understand voting Syria, North Korea – it’s just the satellites. But let’s say, our neighbors, our former CIS partners – I can’t understand why they are voting “against” – said Yelchenko.

He noted that Belarus ‘ position looks very strange, because everywhere it says that they support such a difficult neutrality. “Because “the Minsk area” is the best opportunity for negotiation of the issue and they vote against our resolution,” – said Yelchenko.
The delegation of Belarus to the UN chronically vote against any of the ideas and proposals of the Ukrainian side, even those that do not apply to the conflict with Russia.
“I personally fully support it, I don’t remember who proposed it, some of the parliamentary group in the Verkhovna Rada that we just need to migrate this platform from Minsk to some other capital. With all my respect to Belarusian diplomacy, but I can’t this position to understand what kind of neutrality it? And let they us do not take offense, but the evidence on the scoreboard of the General Assembly. Talk the talk, but here is the result. They just chronically vote against any of our ideas, against any of our proposals, even those that do not apply to the conflict with Russia. This is evidenced by a certain position of the country on the basis of which you want to make serious conclusions”, – said Yelchenko.
