‘There is a critical need to reform the UN Security Council – especially when it concerns the veto right. The veto shouldn’t be blocking any further actions of the Security Council. If this authority wants to deal with issues of mass murders in the light of such crimes (Russian military aggression in Ukraine, - 112 International), we should remove this obstacle so that the Council works more effectively’, Petro Poroshenko said at the briefing broadcasted by 112 Ukraine TV channel.
Ukraine initiates limitation of the veto right in the UN Security Council by the authority’s permanent members, one of them being Russia.
President Petro Poroshenko previously said that the exceeded use of veto right by UN Security Council’s permanent members is ‘a license to kill’, when it comes to armed conflicts.
