- If anything represents a threat to peace and security, it is the shameless and aggressive actions of the United States and their allies to oust a legitimately elected president of Venezuela (Nicolas Maduro).

- You (Germany's delegate) have a very strange way of proposing to prevent this crisis by putting forward an absurd ultimatum. You completely disregard the sovereignty of Venezuela, imposing on it decisions that you prefer and rejecting its people the right to resolve their affairs. Germany’s delegate is calling the legitimate authorities of Venezuela to acknowledge defeat and transfer of power. What you are doing is not prevention, but incitement. How would you feel if the Russian Federation brought the situation and protests in France to the Council? The Russian Federation is proposing to help Venezuela resolve its own affairs.
