). 

1. (C) We discussed Venezuela's bid for a seat on the UN 
Security Council with Andriy Beshta from the MFA United 
Nations directorate April 18, reiterating ref C demarche 
points and drawing on information from ref A.  Beshta said 
that his office had used our previous demarche to formulate a 
proposal for Ukraine's position on the Group of Latin 
American Countries (GRULAC) seat in the UN, pending review by 
Foreign Minister Borys Tarasyuk.  Beshta said that between 
travel and ongoing efforts to form a majority coalition in 
the Rada (parliament) following recent elections, Tarasyuk 
had not had a chance to look at the proposal.  Beshta said he 
thought a decision would come down soon, and said he would 
contact us when he had an answer. 

2. (C) Privately, Beshta said he thought Ukraine would vote 
against the "disruptive candidate," (i.e., Venezuela). 
Beshta noted that when he had worked at Ukraine's mission to 
the UN, he had enjoyed a good working relationship with 
colleagues from the Guatemalan mission.
