Russia has requested the participation of Roger Waters (pictured), one of the founders of the British rock band Pink Floyd, in a meeting of the UN Security Council, where they want to involve him as a speaker. This information was confirmed by the first deputy chairman of the Russian Federation at the organization Dmitry Polyansky.

"Taking into account the information that is already beginning to leak into the media, I confirm that Russia has requested a British peace activist and famous rock musician Roger Waters as a speaker at a UN Security Council meeting on the prospects for a peaceful settlement of the Ukrainian crisis in the context of growing supplies of Western weapons to this country", - Polyansky said on his Telegram channel.

He added that the meeting will begin on February 8 at 18:00 Moscow time.

During a tour in August, Waters called US President Joe Biden a war criminal, and also called on Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky to start a dialogue with Moscow. He also called the special operation a response to NATO's advance to the Russian borders. Commenting on the musician's words, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev noted that "there are adequate people in the West".
