Russia’s war of aggression in Ukraine was a dominant issue during Ireland’s term on the Security Council.

At the Security Council, and elsewhere, Ireland delivered consistent, principled and powerful criticism of Russia’s war, and defence of the UN Charter and the people of Ukraine.

In April, Minister Coveney brought eyewitness testimony of massacres in Bucha to the Security Council table.

In September, during high level week, the Minister underlined the importance of the Black Sea Grain Initiative, following his visit to the port of Odesa with Ukraine’s Foreign Minister.

Ireland has stood by Ukraine, consistently holding Russia to account for their illegal invasion and countering Russian disinformation on the Security Council.
