Ukraine initiated the process of excluding russia from the United Nations

Ukraine calls on the member states of the UN to resume the application of the UN Charter in the context of the legitimacy of the russian federation’s presence in the UN, to deprive the russian federation of its status as a permanent member of the UN Security Council and to exclude it from the UN as a whole.

This is mentioned in the statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.

It also states: “the Russian Federation has never gone through the legal procedure to be admitted to membership and therefore illegally occupies the seat of the USSR in the UN Security Council. From a legal and political point of view, there can be only one conclusion: Russia is an usurper of the Soviet Union’s seat in the UN Security Council.”

“It is high time to discuss the role of the russian federation in the democratic world. For each bomb, missile, death, energy terror. I address the world diplomatic team with a request to remove the russian federation as a permanent member of the UN and UNESCO in order to restore security and peace in the European Union and beyond,” said Oleksandr Tkachenko, Minister of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine.

Due to the russian full-scale invasion and the aggressive policy of moscow, russia’s actions are discrediting and destroying the entire UN system. That is why the question of the fate of the russian federation in the UN should be resolved in the general context of its responsibility for gross violations of the norms and principles of international law. And also for war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide in Ukraine.

We also recall that MCIP addressed UNESCO to exclude the russian federation from the organization, because russia is deliberately and systematically destroying Ukrainian cultural and historical heritage, as well as social infrastructure. Excluding russia from UNESCO would officially declare a violation of international law by the aggressor country. In this case, the russian federation would lose the possibility of international cultural cooperation.

Previously, UNESCO refused to exclude the russian federation from the organization, arguing that all states have the right to membership in UNESCO and can be deprived of it only in case of exclusion from the UN.
