The moment Russia attempted to block President Zelensky speaking at the UN Security Council
Watch the full moment the Albanian prime minister exchanged terse words with the Russian delegate in unprecedented scenes at the UN Security Council.
Russia has objected to the proposal to hand the floor over to Volodymyr Zelensky before security council members can speak.
However, Albanian prime minister Edi Rama says the notice of speaking orders was given to members in advance, and says the objection should have been decided beforehand.
He adds this is not a “special operation” by Albania – a nod to Russia’s term for its war in Ukraine – and that it is in line with the committee’s practices.
