Newsline: Canada trolls Russia’s UN representative

Canada’s Mission to the United Nations on Thursday trolled a Russian diplomat by marking up the diplomat’s letter denouncing a UN resolution condemning attacks on civilians by Russian troops in Ukraine. (https://www.businessinsider.com/canada-trolls-russian-united-nations-diplomat-edits-letter-resolution-ukraine-2022-3) The letter, written by Russia’s UN representative Vassily Nebenzia, urged member states to ignore a proposed humanitarian resolution in regards to Russia’s ongoing war against Ukraine, and accept its own draft resolution. Canada’s UN representative decided, however, to post copies of the letter to Twitter, and made edits in red ink. In the edited letter, Canada slammed Russia for being the “primary cause” of war in Ukraine, “bombing schools and hospitals,” violating international law, and more.
