The killing of civilians due to NATO’s bombing of Libya is still being overlooked. This was announced by Russia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Vitaly Churkin, speaking at an open debate held at the UN Security Council.

The diplomat said that this was not just a question of compliance with the Security Council mandate to protect civilians, but also “elementary ethical rules, which required an apology and financial compensation.”

The death of civilians during NATO’s operation Unified Protector, whose aim was to support the counter-revolutionaries fighting the legitimate government, has been the subject of several major investigations.
