“Now Russia is reviewing plans to attempt the annexation of the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions, as well as all the territories of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions. It’s annoying,” said the representative of the United States.

She stressed that the seizure of territory by force is a blatant violation of the UN Charter.

“We will not stand by and silently allow this to happen,” Thomas-Greenfield said.

She also appealed to representatives of those countries that call on “all parties” to diplomacy and do not name Russia: “Let’s be clear: it is the current actions of the Russian Federation that are the only obstacle to resolving this crisis.”
