  • Ukraine’s envoy to the UN accused Russia of serving Chicken Kiev after missile strikes on the capital.
  • He posted a photo of the luncheon’s menu, which came after a Ukrainian children’s hospital was hit.
  • The luncheon was related to Russia holding the Security Council president’s chair for July.

Sergiy Kyslytsya, the Ukrainian ambassador to the United Nations, accused Russia on Wednesday of serving “Chicken Kiev” at a luncheon after it attacked a children’s hospital.

He posted a photo of the menu for a Tuesday UN Security Council event hosted by Russia, which includes the item “Chicken Kiev served with Potato Paille.”

Chicken Kiev is a stuffed chicken fillet coated in egg and bread crumbs. It is a dish often eaten in Ukraine and the Soviet Union, though its origins are disputed. Some sources claim it was invented in St. Petersburg, while others say it came from France.

In a caption to his post on X, Kyslytsya bashed Russia’s ambassador to the UN, Vassily Nebenzia.

“I cannot understand how you can shake his hand and accept an invitation to dine with him, paid for in blood money,” he wrote, taking an excerpt from a speech he made on Tuesday.

Nebenzia holds the president’s chair for the Security Council in July as part of the UN’s monthly rotation.

He chaired an emergency meeting on Tuesday condemning a missile strike that destroyed part of the Okhmatdyt Children’s Hospital in Kyiv on Monday.

The strike killed at least two people, Ukrainian authorities said.

It came amid a wave of Russian missile attacks on Ukraine, which killed at least 47 people and injured 190 more that day.

At the UN meeting on Tuesday, Kyslytsya slammed Russia and Nebenzia.

“The question is, what kind of future are we talking about if a murderer feels comfortable sitting here knee-deep in children’s blood in the chair of the President of the Security Council?” he said.

According to the Associated Press, Nebenzia thanked Kyslytysa as part of his duty as rotating president of the security council.

“In accordance with the traditions of the council presidency, and purely as the president of the council,” he said, per The AP, “I am compelled to thank Ukraine for their statement.”

The Russian Foreign Affairs Ministry and the Russian Geneva mission to the UN did not immediately respond to requests for comment sent outside regular business hours by Business Insider.
