    “Security council today hold its seventh meeting on Ukraine, which was the logic result of the previous six meetings where we exchanged the views on the situation in Ukraine. They were all about Russian invasion in Crimea. Today was an attempt to adapt the resolution on the stance of these Security Council members has to be. Tomorrow's referendum has to be aggression as it is Russian position - vetoed the resolution - says by itself. So we have an aggressor, who demonstrated it publically today. So it opens the doors to another measure to be implemented - sanctions which will bring to isolation of Russia aggression, if they are not able to stop this idiotism which is ruining whole system of international security” – the Ambassador said.
