Russia Takes Center Stage On UN Security Council

First of all, let me start this off by saying that Russia was not unprovoked.

The current situation in Ukraine was 100% exacerbated by NATO and U.S. deep-state actors who have been using the country as a staging ground for military harassment and aerial reconnaissance missions into Russia.

That being said, they are openly considered ‘belligerents’ by almost the entirety of the U.S.-led global order—I don’t agree with this classification, I am simply pointing out how these people classify Russia.

Despite this, Russia will now assume control of the UN Security Council, in accordance with the UN Charter and the procedures governing the council.

All judgments aside, how does this even make sense?

To me, this story just highlights the intense dysfunctionality of supranational organizations like the UN—the same organization that was supposed to prevent things like the conflict in Ukraine in the first place. …

Here are the latest developments:

The Wall Street Journal recently opened up a piece with this:

The United Nations has reached another grotesque moral milestone as Vladimir Putin’s Russia has assumed the presidency of the Security Council in April.

Yes, the country that is bombing cities and civilians in Ukraine, and threatening nuclear war, takes over the body that is supposed to enforce international norms among nations.


CBS News reports:

A spokesperson for the U.S. Mission to the U.N. said Washington saw “no feasible international legal pathway,” however, to change the fact that Russia is a permanent member of the Security Council, and so qualified to hold the rotating presidency.

“It would be possible for the U.S. and its allies to demand a debate on Ukraine and demand that Russia recuses itself from presiding over the meeting because of its role in the war,” Richard Gowan, an expert on the global body and U.N. Director for the International Crisis Group, told CBS News, referring to U.N. Charter provisions that state “a party to a dispute shall abstain from voting” on some types of resolutions.
