On Monday Russia’s permanent representative to the UN, Vitaly Churkin, demanded a full investigation into civilian deaths in Libya from NATO air strikes.

“Unfortunately, NATO has taken a purely propagandistic position, claiming a total lack of civilian casualties in Libya, which, in the first place is absolutely incredible, and in the second place not true,” the Russian envoy told reporters.

Churkin added that he would raise this issue at the UN Security Council on Thursday.

In addition, the Russian diplomat criticized the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, who on December 14th, defended the actions of NATO forces.
