Ukraine wants Russia expelled from U.N.

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Ukraine is requesting the expulsion of Russia from the United Nations hours after Vladimir Putin said he was open to negotiations with “acceptable solutions.”

Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry published a letter Monday calling for Russia’s removal from the U.N., as well as revoking its permanent member status on the U.N. Security Council, due to questions surrounding Russia’s legitimacy following the fall of the Soviet Union in December 1991 that “left unresolved the issue of international rights and obligations of the USSR.”

The Russian Federation took over the seat of a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council by bypassing the procedures defined by the U.N. charter, Ukraine claims, mentioning how the current charter does not contain the words “Russian Federation.”
