Newsline: New Zealand summons Russian Ambassador over Ukraine

New Zealand’s government summoned Russian Ambassador Georgii Zuev to meet Wednesday with top diplomatic officials who are urging Russia to return to diplomatic negotiations over Ukraine. Foreign Affairs Minister Nanaia Mahuta is currently out of the country but said in a statement that the ambassador was called in “to hear New Zealand’s strong opposition to the actions taken by Russia in recent days, and condemn what looks to be the beginning of a Russian invasion into Ukraine territory.” (https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/the-latest-australia-announces-more-sanctions-on-russia/2022/02/23/a025e778-9484-11ec-bb31-74fc06c0a3a5_story.html) The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade confirmed to The Associated Press that the meeting had taken place but declined to provide any further details.
