On November 17, Russia’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations Yevstigneeva expressed her opposition to any idea of restricting the privileges of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council, including a veto.
The reason she gave was that the use of the veto power or the threat of use of the veto power more than once prevented the United Nations from participating in suspicious risks.
Want to limit and share the privileges of the “Five Constants”? Want to veto the veto power of the “Five Constants”? Don’t even think about it, go home and wash and sleep!
Although Yevstinyeva spoke on behalf of Russia, her speech fully represented the aspirations of the United Nations “Five Constants”.
The circle of power is so big, it is unnecessary to squeeze into any foot. Regardless of when India is striving to become a permanent member of the UN, it will receive this support for a while and that support for a while.
At most, it is close to getting the verbal support of all the member states of the “Five Permanent Councils.” But when it comes to voting, there is always one inexplicably The “five permanent” countries voted against it. For this reason, India hates the “five permanent members” that prevented it from joining the permanent membership.
Obviously, whoever said this in the United Nations “Five Permanents” will inevitably affect the relations with India, Japan, Germany, and Brazil. But why does Russia have to jump out of the front desk to be this “villain”?
Especially when India has increased its procurement of Russian arms, and Germany and Russia have made rapid progress in cooperation on the “Beixi No. 2” gas pipeline.
Isn’t this move by Russia pushing India and Germany into the US lineup? Moreover, India’s foreign policy has now shown signs of shifting from “non-alignment” to the United States. Russia’s statement will bring India closer to the United States.
In fact, Russia is also a last resort.
First of all, Biden will bring a severe test to Russia’s international environment.
Unlike Trump’s relationship with Putin, Biden is hostile to Russia. On October 20, Biden said in an interview with ABC that he believed that the country that threatened the United States the most was Russia, and China was only its biggest competitor.
From Biden’s positioning on Russia and China, we can see that during Biden’s tenure, the US foreign policy will be more inclined to contain, contain, and restrict Russia. Asia, the Middle East, and Europe will all become the United States and Russia.
The “main battlefield” of the collision. Russia expressed its attitude at this time and warned them not to choose sides.
Second, the changes in the international situation have brought new challenges to Russia. During the Cold War, the Soviet Union had a group of “little brothers” who were able to compete with the United States in some matters, but it is obvious that there is still a gap between the Soviet Union and the United States in their influence on the United Nations.
In the 1950s, the United States organized a “United Nations Army” to wage war on the peninsula in the name of the United Nations, and the Soviet Union could not stop the US decision. With the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the United States’ influence in the world far exceeds that of Russia. Russia’s international situation is even more difficult.
The United Nations Security Council has become the only place where Russia can fight against the hegemony of the United States. If the privileges of permanent members of the UN Security Council are compromised, Russia will suffer the most.
Again, it has something to do with Russia’s consistent tough style. Russia has the title of “fighting nation”, and its President Putin is known as “tough”.
For any behavior that harms Russia’s interests, it never saves face to any country, and it must send troops without hesitation when it is time to send troops.
If India, Japan, Germany, and Brazil become permanent members of the UN Security Council, they will inevitably pose a threat to Russia’s interests. Therefore, based on Russia’s individuality, it will inevitably make clear its position and leave them no illusions.
Now that Russia has shown its attitude, India, Japan, Germany, Brazil and other countries should not dream of becoming permanent members of the United Nations.
Otherwise, the drama of “Russia’s one-vote veto and Ukraine’s request to abolish Russia’s one-vote veto” will be performed again. .
