Political position is increasingly expressed not at the negotiating table or in public speeches, and Internet sites. Monday, may 9, the head of the State Duma Committee on international Affairs Alexei Pushkov left in his microblog Twitter record with address to the permanent US representative to the UN Samantha Power.
Eighty countries have put forward UN draft resolution against the practice strikes on hospitals, which is known to US. Samantha Power need to think about it, not about the Crimea, – said the politician-TV host.

We will remind, recently the Power again voiced the position of the United States against anti-Russian sanctions: restrictions may be lifted only after the provisions of the Minsk agreements on the settlement of the conflict in Ukraine will be fully respected, and where the Russian Federation “will cease the occupation of the Peninsula”.
Alexei Pushkov, in turn, reminds of a really existing problem. For example, on 3 October last year, the American air force struck an airstrike on a hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan. According to “Doctors without borders”, the bombing claimed the lives of 42 people: patients, doctors and assistants.
This year, February 10, two attack aircraft of the U.S. air force carried out air strikes on the Syrian city of Aleppo, after what the official representative of the Pentagon Colonel Steven Warren was accused of bombing Russia. This was in ironic form the official representative of the defense Ministry major-General Igor Konashenkov.
Colonel Warren somehow did not advertise this flies in direct and, by the way, in a figurative sense, too, – said Konashenkov.
Attempts to attribute to the Russian army inflicted on someone else or is fictional damage still does not stop. Recently some media have published regular news about the allegedly destroyed after an airstrike, Russia hospital “al-Quds”, in Aleppo, which reportedly killed dozens of civilians. In these publications, the Ministry of defense of Russia responded with a demonstration of pictures of the hospital from October 15, 2015 and 29 April 2016 – which show that ruined last year the hospital received no new damage.
– The pictures clearly confirm that all the supposedly “eyewitness accounts” about the fact of the airstrike on the hospital are actually another fake. Further comments are superfluous here, – said Konashenkov the same.
Cannon, by the way, showed tact. In addition to the failures of the US army, he could point out Samantha Power on the tragic incident that occurred in April with her participation in the town Milk in the North of Cameroon.
– One of the children who had met the convoy of U.S. permanent representative to the UN Samantha Power, rushed into the road and fell under the wheels of the jeep. The boy was hospitalized, but later died in hospital… – said the head of the press service of the state Department of the USA John Kirby.
As for a resolution condemning attacks on medical facilities and humanitarian workers in conflict-ridden countries, the UN security Council adopted it unanimously. The document requires that all parties to armed conflict to respect fully international humanitarian law to ensure respect for and protection of humanitarian personnel.Related posts:
