The Ukrainian Staff of the foreign Ministry in new York and in truth live in the same building with Russian colleagues, but the French media about what they like would make the problems of the guards of the building of the Russian Federation, is nonsense, said on Thursday Russia's permanent representative to the UN Vitaly Churkin.
"The permanent mission of Russia and Ukraine live well in the room. Ukrainians used the fifth floor as internal office hotels, cars are in a heated underground garage. Russia provides engineering services and security. Workers of the Ukrainian mission and residents of the requests of the Ukrainian side freely allowed in the house. Never any complaints from their side had Not arrived, " said Churkin, whose words are quoted by the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation in its own account in the social network Facebook.
So he explained the text in the French newspaper dated March 6, where it is reported about the fact that the Ukrainian Staff of the foreign Ministry as if experiencing difficulties, living in the same building with the Russian colleagues." This material is remarkable in that it consists almost entirely of lies and misinformation, " said Churkin.
"pointing to some" diplomatic sources ", burro (author) informs that after the annexation of Crimea " for "unconquered Ukrainian diplomats" were initiated problem - the Russian guards, as if it were entertained by the fact that for a long time keep them in the cold and rain, deliberately Not opening the Doors of the building, and turn off the electricity When Ukrainians go in the Elevator. When the Ukrainian side was made an offer to purchase it for this floor " market price ", the citizens of Russia would Not recommending twice the lower price. In the end, Ukraine was forced to accept the existence of its employees in the state of "frozen conflict" with the Russian mission, " said Churkin.
"Why" UN correspondent "it took to write all this nonsense, and respected "Monda" to print? Nothing was easier than to call the Consulate General of Russia and learn how things are in reality, " he added.
according to him, in addition to complaints over the past nine years from Ukrainians were Not received and offer for sale the floor." To turn off the electricity from the elevators with Ukrainians impossible, because the employees of the permanent mission of Russia (and, by the way, Belarus) they also use. The doors leading into the lobby of the building, are always open. Not only Ukrainians, but also any person off the street can get into a warm room without any action from the commandants of the permanent mission. The entrance of the Consulate General and the patio is equipped with a canopy, So "wait for the rain to Ukrainians hardly ever had," said Churkin.
"The only real problem is that for nearly two years as Ukrainians do Not pay for utility service (water, sewer, heat, electricity, gas), and these costs they have to bear the permanent mission of Russia ", - said the Russian Ambassador to the UN.
