Ukraine: Ardern castigates


New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Thursday blasted the UN's “failure” to prevent war in Ukraine, and accused Russia of forcing the Security Council to “morally corrupt” position. 

Ms Ardern, who has long criticized the veto power of the five permanent members of the Security Council (China, United States, France, United Kingdom , Russia), renewed its call for reform of the United Nations. – she said in a lecture given at the Lowy Institute in Sydney, a think tank, during a visit to Australia.

According to her, Russia has used its seat on the Security Council to impose “a morally corrupt position as a result of a morally corrupt and illegal war”.

“We need to reform the United Nations so that we do not have to rely on particular countries imposing their pr opers sanctions”, she pleaded.
