Russia is engaging in aggressive and destabilizing actions that are threatening the rules-based international order, Samantha Power said Tuesday in her last major speech as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.In a blistering and detailed critique of Russia's foreign and military policies, Power also called for maintaining U.S. sanctions on Moscow and supporting the NATO alliance, which U.S. President-elect Donald Trump has criticized.Trump has said he will seek to improve relations with Moscow, despite criticism that he is too eager to make an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S intelligence reports that say Putin sought to influence the U.S. election in favor of Trump.While Trump said in an interview with The Times of London this month that he would propose offering to end some sanctions on Russia in return for a nuclear arms reduction deal, Power urged against lifting U.S. sanctions too quickly.
