Second Right of Reply to the Russian Federation on the Conflict in Ukraine
As delivered by Ambassador Michael R. Carpenter
to the Permanent Council, Vienna
July 21, 2022
I would encourage the Russian representative, when you do raise your “current issue” and when you have more to share with us, please explain to this Council: are you appalled by the death of a four-year-old girl and seven and eight-year-old boys? Are those military targets? Did their lives have value to you? Does it matter that they are now dead? That their relatives are grieving? That their mothers and fathers, and extended family, no longer have those people with them in this world? Explain to the Council how you feel about that.
