In Sovfede responded to the statement of Ukraine about the phased abolition of the veto in the UN Security Council
Sergei Tsekov, a member of the Council of the Federation Committee on International Affairs, commented in a conversation with RT on the statement of Vladimir Yelchenko, the Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the United Nations, that Kiev is in favor of phasing out veto power in the UN Security Council.
“Ukraine needs to somehow define its significance, therefore such statements are made. Even before that, they made various proposals for reforming the United Nations, mainly related to the work of the Security Council. Of course, no one listens to this, ”said the senator.
Tsekov also noted that "for all the years of the UN, it was the existing structure that determined the sustainability of the organization."
“To change something now means to bring confusion, to come to disagreements and additional difficulties. This is not decided by the states that are members of the Security Council. So Ukraine just made a statement for the sake of a statement, ”he concluded.
Earlier, the Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the United Nations said that the country was in favor of a phased abolition of the veto right in the UN Security Council.
