Speaking in Hiroshima, United Nations (UN) Secretary General António Guterres did not mention that the US is the only country to have used nuclear weapons against civilians. This was stated by the First Deputy Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the United Nations (UN) Dmitry Polyansky.
“Dear Secretary General [ООН], the world should also never forget that this crime (the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki – approx. URA.RU) was committed by the United States, being the only country that used the atomic bomb against civilians. Without any military need. It would be right if you mentioned this in your statements too! ”, Dmitry Polyansky wrote on Twitter (blocked in the Russian Federation).
Earlier it was reported that during a speech in Hiroshima, António Guterres called on the nuclear powers to permanently abandon the use of weapons of mass destruction. He called nuclear weapons meaningless and stated that states should not allow nuclear war. Speaker of the State Duma of the Russian Federation Vyacheslav Volodin called on the United States to repent for the atomic strikes on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
