Ambassador Volodymyr Yelchenko said in New York on July 28 as he urged the UN Security Council to declare a recent Russian move to incorporate Crimea into southern Russia "null and void" and once again reaffirm that the peninsula belongs to Ukraine, Censor.NET reports citing Radio Liberty/Radio Free Europe.
"If this is his opinion as a candidate for the president of the United States, well, this is his opinion. I hope and I'm almost sure that this opinion will change," Yelchenko said at the United Nations Security Council meeting dedicated to Crimea July 28.
"Mr. Trump is not the president of the United States, at least not yet," ambassador of Ukraine to the United Nations Organization stressed.
Earlier, Russia blocked statement of the UN Security Council on Crimea drafted by Ukraine.
