Russia must be removed from the United Nations Security Council
Russia never legally acquired its status as a permanent UN Security Council member and must lose its seat in this esteemed chamber, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba stated in his article published in The Hill.
He noted that Russian representatives illegally usurped the USSR’s seat at the United Nations Security Council in December 1991.
“The simple change of the Soviet name plate to the Russian one was the largest diplomatic fraud of the 20th century. Let me reiterate what I said at the United Nations Security Council in February: Russia has turned the seat of a permanent member into a throne of impunity. We are now dealing with the consequences of the breach of rules that happened 32 years ago,” added Kuleba.
