Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Russian diplomat to UN in Geneva quits over Ukraine war” – below is their description.

A Russian diplomat to the United Nations in Geneva said he had handed in his resignation before sending out a scathing letter to foreign colleagues inveighing against the ‘aggressive war unleashed’ by the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, in Ukraine.

Boris Bondarev, 41, confirmed his resignation in a letter posted on his Facebook page.

‘For 20 years of my diplomatic career I have seen different turns of our foreign policy, but never have I been so ashamed of my country as on 24 February of this year,’ he wrote, alluding to the date of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine
