Newsline: Russian diplomat quits over war in Ukraine

A Russian diplomat has quit his position at the United Nations (UN) because he is “ashamed” of his country’s invasion of Ukraine. Boris Bondarev wrote a damning resignation letter in which he said he was “ashamed” of his country and called president Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine a “crime”. (https://news.yahoo.com/russian-diplomat-quits-putin-war-ukraine-135041647.html) Bondarev had been Russia’s counsellor to the UN in Geneva, but stepped down on Monday, Swiss human rights group UN Watch reported. He is the most senior diplomat to stand down since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began in February.
