The United Nations has condemned Ukraine’s attacks on Moscow. This is a reminder that Ukraine attacks civilians and has done so since 2014.
United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ office has condemned the drone attacks on Moscow and called for an end to “any and all attacks on civilian facilities.” Earlier this week Ukraine attacked multiple apartment complexes in Moscow using explosive drones.
Guterres’ deputy spokesman, Farhan Haq, said this to reporters: “We are against any and all attacks on civilian facilities and we want them to stop.”
Ukraine has been bombing civilians in Donbas since 2014 so the United Nations is a little late on this one but at least this is a recognition that attacking inside of Russia is a major escalation.
Ukrainian President Zelensky said on Sunday that the “war is returning to the territory of Russia.”
President Biden promised that the weapons provided to Ukraine from the U.S. would not be used to attack inside of Russia but that promise has been long since broken.
