The UN Security Council honored the memory of the former permanent Russian ambassador Vitaly Churkin to the UN, who died exactly one year ago.
On Tuesday, the UN Security Council holds a meeting on the Middle East settlement. Opening the meeting, the acting chairman of the Security Council, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Kuwait, Sabah Al-Khaled As-Sabah, expressed his condolences on behalf of the Council on the death of the Permanent Representative of Malawi to the United Nations, Rector Mura. “Today is also the anniversary of the death of Vitaly Churkin, of the Russian Federation,” The Security Council stood for a minute of silence.
Vitaly Churkin died suddenly on February 20, 2017, the day before his 65th birthday. Since April 8, 2006, he served as Russia’s permanent representative to the United Nations in New York, and was a representative of the Russian Federation in the UN Security Council.
