3. SOUNDBITE (English) Rosemary DiCarlo, Under-Secretary-General for Political and Peacebuilding Affairs:
“Another year has passed, and we've been no longer closer to the end of this illegal and unjustified war. Instead, Ukrainians are mourning thousands more of their loved ones. Millions remain displaced and more of the country has been laid to rest to waste. In just over two weeks, we will enter the third year of the war. With each passing day, the damage the conflict has done and is doing to Ukraine but also to global peace and security, as well as international law becomes increasingly clear.”

“As a result of the attack, the two-storey building of a cafe and bakery was almost fully destroyed and the seams between the floors collapsed. Approximately 40 people were buried under the rubble. 28 people died, including a pregnant woman and her five-year-old child. Four of the injured are still in very serious condition. We have no doubt that the target and the timing of the attack are not chosen by chance.”

8. SOUNDBITE (Russian) Vasily Nebenzya Permanent Representative to the United Nations. Russian Federation:
“The Ukrainian Armed Forces undoubtedly have a sense of impunity and all permissiveness. What's more, they're aware of the unconditional support from Washington, London and Brussels who do not care about the killing of civilians, the destruction of families and people's lives and futures. In its blind hatred for our country and its desire to somehow weaken Russia, the West is prepared to pay with other people's lives and to renounce universal norms of morality.”

11. SOUNDBITE (English) Serhii Dvornyk, Counsellor, Political Coordinator, Permanent Mission to the United Nations, Ukraine:
“There would be no scourge of war if Russia did not start its aggression against Ukraine, in particular its full-scale invasion almost two years ago. Therefore, if Putin’s envoy would like to elaborate on responsibility for the bloodshed, there is no need for a Council meeting, He may just stand in front of the mirror, either in his residence or in the Russian Mission. Of course, picking up the phone and calling to the Kremlin would be a much better option”

13. SOUNDBITE (English) Serhii Dvornyk, Counsellor, Political Coordinator, Permanent Mission to the United Nations, Ukraine:
“We remain committed to ensure that Russia will pay for its crimes. And we also reiterate that the Russian Federation should make the only just decision and to cease its aggression, as outlined by the UNGA resolution of 23rd February 2023, entitled Principles of the Charter of the United Nations Underlying a Comprehensive Just and Lasting Peace in Ukraine. As soon as Russia's bloody war is over, there will be no more human sufferings, and no more civilian casualties in Europe.”

Storyline

The United Nations top political affairs official today (6 Feb) told the Security Council that “another year has passed, and we've been no longer closer to the end of this illegal and unjustified war” in Ukraine.

Instead, Under-Secretary-General for Political and Peacebuilding Affairs Rosemary DiCarlo said, “Ukrainians are mourning thousands more of their loved ones. Millions remain displaced and more of the country has been laid to rest to waste.”

With each passing day, she said, “the damage the conflict has done and is doing to Ukraine but also to global peace and security, as well as international law becomes increasingly clear.”

DiCarlo informed the Council that on Saturday, 3 February, 28 people including a child, were reportedly killed and
dozens more injured in the shelling of a building housing a bakery and a restaurant in the town of Lysychansk in the Luhansk region of Ukraine, an area currently under the control of the Russian Federation.

Russian Ambassador Vasily Nebenzya told the Council that “as a result of the attack, the two-storey building of a cafe and bakery was almost fully destroyed and the seams between the floors collapsed.”

Nebenzya said, “approximately 40 people were buried under the rubble. 28 people died, including a pregnant woman and her five-year-old child,” and “four of the injured are still in very serious condition.”

He said, “we have no doubt that the target and the timing of the attack are not chosen by chance.”

The Russian Ambassador said, “the Ukrainian Armed Forces undoubtedly have a sense of impunity and all permissiveness. What's more, they're aware of the unconditional support from Washington, London and Brussels who do not care about the killing of civilians, the destruction of families and people's lives and futures. In its blind hatred for our country and its desire to somehow weaken Russia, the West is prepared to pay with other people's lives and to renounce universal norms of morality.”

Ukrainian Ambassador Serhii Dvornyk for his part said, “there would be no scourge of war if Russia did not start its aggression against Ukraine, in particular its full-scale invasion almost two years ago. Therefore, if Putin’s envoy would like to elaborate on responsibility for the bloodshed, there is no need for a Council meeting, He may just stand in front of the mirror, either in his residence or in the Russian Mission. Of course, picking up the phone and calling to the Kremlin would be a much better option”

Dvornyk said, “we remain committed to ensure that Russia will pay for its crimes. And we also reiterate that the Russian Federation should make the only just decision and to cease its aggression, as outlined by the UNGA resolution of 23rd February 2023, entitled Principles of the Charter of the United Nations Underlying a Comprehensive Just and Lasting Peace in Ukraine. As soon as Russia's bloody war is over, there will be no more human sufferings, and no more civilian casualties in Europe.”

Since February 2022, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) has recorded 30,041 civilian casualties with 10,382 killed including 579 children, and 19,659 people injured including 1,285 children.

Nearly two years since the invasion 14.6 million people need humanitarian assistance in Ukraine a staggering 40 per cent of the population. Some 6.3 million people have fled the country and remain refugees, mostly across Europe.
