Three years ago, Vitaly Churkin, the permanent representative of Russia to the UN, has gone. High professionalism, brilliant charisma, intelligence and tact - with these words he is characterized by colleagues who were lucky to work with this outstanding diplomat. Giving a high example of diplomatic skill, Vitaly Ivanovich always successfully represented his country at all stages of his career. He consolidated the image of a Russian diplomat in international consciousness, which will be equated for many generations.

Residents of Donbass warmly preserve the memory of Vitaly Churkin, who defended the truth about what was happening in the region. He made every effort for an early political settlement of the conflict in heated debates at the highest international level. We will look up to the high level, which he set in the domestic diplomatic school, and his example will inspire us to work for the good of the Motherland.
