Wed, 18.01.2017 11:27

U.S. envoy to the United Nations, Ambassador Samantha Power accuses Russia of the aggression that poses a threat to the international order.

"Russia's actions are not standing up a new world order. They are tearing down the one that exists," she said in her last speech as a member of Barack Obama's outgoing Administration at the Atlantic Council in Washington, D.C., on January 17.

"This is what we are fighting against – having defeated the forces of fascism and communism, we now confront the forces of authoritarianism and nihilism," she added.

Ambassador Power mentioned the illegal annexation by Russia of Ukraine's Crimea, the Kremlin's aggression in the east of Ukraine, the support of Syria's regime in that country's civil war and attempts to meddle in elections in Western democracies by way of cyber attacks.

Ambassador Power will be replaced by Governor of South Carolina Nikki Haley, who was nominated to that position, after U.S. President-elect Donald Trump takes office on January 20.
