Churkin was a "friend and colleague," a "diplomatic giant and wonderful character," Rycroft writes on Twitter. Britain‘s mission to the UN calls Churkin a pillar of the United Nations Security Council and sends its "deepest condolences to his family and colleagues," according to a post on Twitter.

US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley offers her condolences on the death of her Russian counterpart. "Ambassador Vitaly Churkin showed himself to be a gracious colleague," Haley says. "We did not always see things the same way, but he unquestionably advocated his country‘s positions with great skill," says Haley, who took up the post last month. The US ambassador says the United States sends its condolences "to lift up his family and to the Russian people."
