CNN reports:

The Russian ambassador to the United Nations, Vitaly Churkin, died suddenly in New York, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

He died Monday at age 64, one day before his 65th birthday.

Churkin suffered from cardiac arrest while at the Russian Mission on East 67th Street, a law enforcement official said. He was taken to New York’s Presbyterian Hospital, where he died.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said “the outstanding Russian diplomat died while he was in his current working role.”

Churkin was known as a confident, combative, disarming and humorous fixture at the UN Security Council. He was often at odds with the US, the UK and France. China would often take its cue from how Russia would vote.

            Dear fahvel, there are things I avoid debating with you. I do not want to lose your friendship. I believe it’s wiser if I don’t discuss Russia.

          well, being that they’re in America, it’s not that far between NYC and 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., DC.

          we could call it a show of good faith?
