At upcoming session, Rada to officially request UN and other international institutions to beef up sanctions against russia — Venislavskyi
At the next session, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine will send another official request to the UN and other international institutions asking to beef up the sanctions against the russian federation. Fedir Venislavskyi, Representative of the President of Ukraine to Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine made this statement at a briefing at Media Center Ukraine. He noted that russia’s sham referendums are another example of a gross violation of the UN charter and all international norms, particularly those guaranteeing the territorial integrity of states within internationally recognized borders.
“Moreover, now we are increasingly active in various international platforms trying to convey and prove the statement that the russian federation has illegally seized a seat on the UN Security Council, as it is stated (in the UN charter) that the permanent member (of UN Security Council) is the soviet union. After the collapse of the soviet union, there were 15 independent states in its place and, accordingly, each of them has absolutely equal rights,” — Fedir Venislavskyi added.
According to Venislavskyi, russia put itself outside the scope of current international law when it committed open aggression against Georgia in 2008, against Ukraine in 2014, and by starting an all-out war in 2022.
“I think that other civilized countries should also support the opinion that russia has neither a moral nor a legal right to be part of at least the UN Security Council, or even part of the UN in general, because it grossly violates all the norms that this respectable international organization developed after World War II,” — Fedir Venislavskyi explained.
