Churkin: UNSC Western members block Russia draft statement on ceasefire
Western countries at the UN Security Council have blocked Russia-suggested draft statement calling for the observance of a ceasefire at the Malaysian Boeing airliner's crash site in Ukraine, Russia's UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin told journalists on Thursday.
"It (the draft statement) was blocked in a typical manner," the diplomat said. According to him, Lithuania, the United States, and Australia started suggesting unacceptable amendments for introduction to the text. Churkin recalled that the discontinuance of the ceasefire in the area of the airliner's crash site was a direct breach of the UNSC resolution.
