Zampolpreda of Ukraine to the UN Yuriy Vitrenko said that the Russian Federation has got membership in the UN Security Council as if " through unclear and non-transparent procedure ". We emphasize that in contrast to Ukraine from Russia is a permanent member of the UN security Council and other permanent members did not question her right to be in SB.
The exchange of remarks between the delegations of Ukraine and Russia took place in the process of the meeting, the UN security Council resolution. At the meeting on the threats to the UN peacekeeping operations, the head of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin said about the fact that his country knows from experience about " asymmetric threats ". He also said a " terrorist component of the hybrid war launched against Ukraine ", RIA " Novosti ".
Zampolpreda of Russia to the UN, Pyotr Ilyich, for his part, placed emphasis on "attempts of the delegation of Ukraine by all means to continue their advocacy work in the Council" that has nothing to do with the topic of discussion and " casts a shadow on the ability of the Ukrainian delegation to responsibly perform the duties of a non-permanent member of the UN security Council resolution ". In his own response, Yuri Vitrenko said that the country will decide who is worthy to be a member of the UN security Council." We think that the UN members have already given a response to this question, choosing in the past year, Ukraine by majority of votes to serve on this Council for 2 years. In contrast, the Russian Federation, which received the membership in the security Council in 1991 through the vague and opaque procedure, " - said Ukrainian diplomat. In October 2015, Egypt, Senegal, Ukraine, Uruguay and Japan were elected as non-permanent members of the UN security Council resolution for the period 2016–2017. Ukraine scored the least votes - 177 with 14 abstentions. According to the official information of the UN, the Soviet Union was an original member of the world organization on 24 October 1945. On the Internet representative office of the UN States that " in a letter dated 24 December 1991, the head of the Russian Federation Boris Yeltsin informed the Secretary General about the fact that the membership of the Soviet Union in the security Council and all other UN bodies will be continued by the Russian Federation with the assistance of eleven member States of the Commonwealth of Independent countries ". Two republics of the Soviet Union, Ukrainian SSR and Belarusian SSR were co-founders of the UN and members of the organization since 1945. The Ukrainian Soviet socialist Republic was an elected member resolution of the UN security Council in 1948-1949 and 1984-1985, Ukraine in 2000-2001 and the period of 2016-2017 years.
