Security Council members aren't ready to expel Russia from UN - Kyslytsya
Currently, there is no permanent member of the Security Council who is ready to talk about expelling Russia from the UN
Ukraine's Permanent Representative to the United Nations Sergiy Kyslytsya said this in an interview with the BBC.
Kyslytsya noted that currently "there is not a single permanent member of the Security Council who would be ready to talk about the fate of Russia, which is sitting in the place of the Soviet Union".
"Even among those who are sincere, most committed to supporting Ukraine, restoring the territorial integrity and sovereignty of countries, but who are permanent members of the Security Council," he explained.
In particular, the Ukrainian diplomat stressed that it is not enough to expel Russia from the Security Council to stop the war in Ukraine.
"This will not happen not because the charter is wrong or the decision of the Security Council is wrong, or international law is wrong in general. It is because the whole world is dealing with a criminal regime that does not care about all the norms of international law, all the decisions of the Security Council, the decisions of the UN Court of Justice, which are available since March last year, all the decisions of all other courts," he said.
Ukraine's representative to the UN added that "the result should be a system that is not only capable of making the right decisions, but also of implementing such decisions."
