The problems associated with Russophobia will go away when a ceasefire in Ukraine is achieved. This opinion was expressed by Deputy Spokesperson for the Secretary General of the United Nations (UN) Farhan Haq.
Thus, he commented on the situation with anti-Russian sentiments in some countries and the seizure of property of Russians abroad. Haq stressed that the UN is focused on efforts to end the current crisis in the region. According to him, Russophobia will go away when hostilities stop and the world community returns to the path to peace.
