Remembering Vitaly Churkin

21 February 2017

“He was an outstanding diplomat and a remarkable person”, “he was some sort of a phenomenon”, “a maestro of diplomacy”. Diplomats and politicians are shocked by the sudden death of Russia’s Ambassador to UN Vitaly Churkin. Even those, who used to have strong arguments with him at the Security Council, his western opponents now admit that they are “devastated” and that he was “a friend”, writes VZGLYAD.
