SOT, Vasili Nebenzia, Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the United Nations (English): «The one that I.. some time ago, long time ago I already put on paper. The 'y' comes from the not-automatic translation, and maybe it's more correct. But I spelled my name with an 'i' and with a double 's' for a long time, so why change it now?»
Permanent Representative of the Russian... Еще Federation to the United Nations Vasili Nebenzia asked press at UNHQ in New York City on Wednesday whether there was «anything in this world today that Russia is not guilty of,» given that the US sanctions bill against Russia «was adopted by US Congress on the host of absurd accusations.»
The recently installed UN envoy added that «sanctions will not solve the problem,» saying that only political dialogue could achieve de-escalation of Russian-US tensions.
Speaking about his relationship with US Permanent Representative to the UN Nikki Haley, Nebenzia described the US representative as «a very open person,» and said that he reciprocated her will of cooperating «because it's our destiny to cooperate here.»
Before leaving, one reporter asked the Russian diplomat about the correct spelling of his name, to which Nebenzia answered: «The 'y' comes from the not-automatic translation, and maybe it's more correct. But I spelled my name with an 'i' and with a double 's' for a long time, so why change it now?»
