A spokesperson for jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny has welcomed a Russian diplomat's decision to leave his role as counsellor to the UN over the war in Ukraine, Qazet.az reports.

Posting a copy of Boris Bondarev's resignation statement to her Twitter account, Kira Yarmysh commended the diplomat for being the "only honest person at the Foreign Ministry".

She is a spokesperson for Russia's most prominent opposition figure, Alexei Navalny, who was sentenced to nine years in a "strict regime penal colony" in Russia earlier this year.
