The head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry wanted to exclude Russia from the UN Security Council.

The head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry wanted to exclude Russia from the UN Security Council.

During the broadcast of the telethon, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said that Kyiv intends to raise the question of the legitimacy of Russia’s presence in the UN Security Council.

“Tomorrow we will officially take this position… Our question is very simple: does Russia have the right to remain a permanent member of the UN Security Council and to be in the United Nations in general? We have a convincing and reasoned answer – no, it does not,” he says.


Earlier, Vasily Nebenzya said that Russia should not be deprived of its seat in the UN Security Council under the Charter of the organization.


Deputy Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Vershinin, in turn, previously called the initiative unrealizable, since in order to amend the UN provisions, it is necessary that they be supported and ratified by two-thirds of the member states, including all permanent members of the Security Council. The department believes that such a decision “will not pass.”
