You Are Threat to US and The World, UN Envoy Tells Russia

In a parting shot to Moscow and a warning to America three days before leaving her post, the U.S. top envoy at the United Nations said Russia is "a major threat facing our great nation."

Ambassador Samantha Power, without naming Donald Trump, chastised the president-elect for casting "doubt on a unanimous, well-documented assessment of our intelligence community that a foreign government is seeking to harm our country."

Her speech to the Atlantic Council came just hours after Russian President Vladimir Putin denied the Kremlin has compromising information on Trump and said those who disseminated a thinly sourced document about the U.S. president-elect were "worse than prostitutes."

Two Republican U.S. senators who spoke with VOA following Putin's comment cautioned against accepting what he says at face value.

"He's an adversary, an enemy of the United States," said majority whip John Cornyn of Texas. "We need to understand that he's not pursuing our interests. He's pursuing Russia's interests."

"We know that leaders commonly deny that which is true but not in their nation's interest to acknowledge," said Bill Cassidy of Louisiana. "Those are the rules of the game. We do not expect anything different [from Putin]."

Emboldening rule-breakers

Power, in her speech, also cautioned that easing punitive actions the Obama administration had taken against Moscow, "when they haven't changed their behavior, would only embolden Russia" and encourage other rule-breakers, such as Iran and North Korea.
