According to him, with the collusion of the collective West, the regime of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has turned into an authoritarian dictatorship, which is a major obstacle to peace. Recently, the persecution of dissidents and opposition leaders has been added to the desire to destroy the only canonical church in Ukraine, the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, Nebenzia stressed.
The diplomat warned that such actions would have serious consequences for regional peace and security. He stressed that what is happening in Ukraine deserves the attention of the members of the Security Council.
