‘Ashamed' Top Russian Diplomat Leaves United Nations Over Putin's ‘Warmongering'
Alexander Ermochenko/ReutersThe chief of the Russian mission to the United Nations in Geneva has resigned his post in shame with a damning hate letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin, calling the Feb. 24 invasion of Ukraine not only a crime against the people of Ukraine, but perhaps "the most serious crime against the people of Russia, with a bold letter Z crossing out all hopes and prospects for a prosperous free society in our country."

Boris Bondarev had worked at Russia's foreign ministry since 2002, first in Moscow and then in Geneva, during which he said "the level of lies and unprofessionalism in the work of the Foreign Ministry has been increasing all the time."

He named checked Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, who he said started as an intellectual held in high esteem, but who was now "a good illustration of the degradation of this system." He blames Lavrov—not Putin—for many of Russia's recent choices, condemning him for "threaten[ing] the world (that is, Russia too!) with nuclear weapons!"
