President of Ukraine called on the UN to exclude Russia from the General Assembly and the Security Council
“I urge you to deprive the delegation of a terrorist state of its powers in the UN General Assembly, and it is possible. Russia has no right to remain in the Security Council. And this path is not too thorny, as it may seem to some if you show consistency and proper political will,” President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.
Zelenskyy noted that the UN has the authority and enough strength to do so. In addition, he recalled that the UN Charter allows the establishment of a special international tribunal to investigate the actions of the Russian military.
“Although Russia violates the fundamental principles of the United Nations and the international legal order, it has not yet been prosecuted at the global level. It still remains in the UN structures and even enjoys the privileges of the chair it occupies — the chair of a permanent member of the UN Security Council,” President Zelenskyy stressed.
