Kiev slams Russia for assuming UN Security Council presidency

Andriy Yermak, the head of Ukraine's presidential administration, on Saturday criticized Russia's assumption of the rotating presidency of the United Nations Security Council as a "symbolic blow."

"It is very telling that on the holiday of one terror state – Iran, another terror state – Russia – begins to preside over the UN Security Council. It's not just a shame. It is another symbolic blow to the rules-based system of international relations," Yermak stated.

Russia assumed the mostly procedural role despite Kiev's attempts to block the move.
