Russia at UNSC: Today 'darkest day' in M. East history

First Deputy Permanent Representative of Russia to the United Nations Dmitry Polyanskiy (pictured) underscored on Friday that this day will go down as the "darkest day" in Middle Eastern history following Washington's decision to veto a draft resolution on a ceasefire in Gaza.

"Our colleagues from the USA have, literally, before our eyes, issued a death sentence to tens of thousands more civilians in Palestine and Israel, including women, children, and also UN staff trying to help them," Polyanskiy said in the address to the Security Council.

The Russian diplomat stressed that Washington's decision was the actual example of their values.
