It will be possible to deprive Russia of the right of veto in the UN Security Council after its final defeat in the war against Ukraine. Such an opinion was voiced by political scientist Vladimir Fesenko on the air of the FREEDOM TV channel.
“The opportunity to neutralize Russia’s veto power and generally limit Russia’s influence in the UN will arise as a result of Russia’s defeat in the war against Ukraine. Or if Russia, God forbid, of course, commits a monstrous crime – the use of nuclear weapons. Then all. I think then this is already such a red line, after which Russia will generally need to be expelled from the UN, ” – he said.
Also, according to the political scientist, for Russia not to commit new crimes, a whole group of influential countries should sound warnings about what it could face in the event of, say, the use of nuclear weapons.
“But if Russia is losing this war, and such a prospect is becoming more and more realistic, this will create political prerequisites for changing the situation both in the UN Security Council and in general with the decision-making mechanisms in the UN. And then it will be practically possible to consolidate the principles that President Zelinsky spoke about in the UN Charter,” – Fesenko added.
According to him, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was the first to talk about reforming the UN. The approach is very innovative, but it will not be possible to implement it immediately. Because the UN is an organization that Russia and China have a huge influence on. But the main thing is to declare. Further it will be implemented step by step.
“Now they have already begun to practically discuss the topic of limiting Russia’s veto right and already practically in reforming the UN. Previously, these discussions were purely theoretical. Now this is a practical approach. The question is when and how will it be implemented? – summed up Vladimir Fesenko.
Earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, in a video message to diplomats and leaders of countries at the 77th session of the UN General Assembly, answered questions about how to achieve peace in Ukraine and prevent a new war. He voiced a universal formula that will allow not only to stop Russia’s war against Ukraine, but also to prevent new armed conflicts.
