Military Review

The United States moved from attempts to abolish the United Nations to winning a majority in its bodies.

25
The head of the Information and Press Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, on the Russia 24 channel said that the United States, which had previously tried to eliminate the UN, is currently seeking to secure a majority in the organization’s structures.

Over the past decade, and even a little more, we have seen different approaches by the US administration - and not only under Mr. Obama, but even earlier - towards the UN. There have been attempts, by the way, very prominent, including before the Obama administration, to simply close the UN as superfluous.


The United States moved from attempts to abolish the United Nations to winning a majority in its bodies.


Attempts to abolish the UN have been traced both in direct statements by leading American politicians and in discrediting the organization through various leaks and corruption scandals. But later, "there was an understanding of the fact that without such a world-wide lighthouse as the UN ... [to exist] in international law is impossible."

After that, the United States switched to another tactic:
another concept has begun - not so much the collapse of the organization and the rejection of the organization as such, "how many" conquests - that's exactly what these words are - the majority in several UN bodies
. According to M. Zakharov, these actions undermine the foundations of the UN, "because it is an organization that guarantees a balance of interests in the world, and not a tool to promote the interests of one country."

      The United States was not going to and is not going to get off the pedestal in the UN structures.
      USA is like Yatsenyuk! It was impossible to steal from the rostrum of the Verkhovna Rada even for “feberge”!

        Water sharpens a stone. Sooner or later they will conquer. But what our people have been doing all this time is a question.

    Well, do the same there at the Foreign Ministry! Fortunately, with the advent of Trump, a chance appeared - he simply scammed many from the states ...

          No, our foreign ministry (that is, with small letters) can only express deep concern with an intelligent facial expression (Münghausen). Do not understand to whom. But the partners WORK.

            And they were engaged in that, in order to prevent full control over the organization from the United States. Yes, they have more leverage over the UN than ours, but nonetheless, using their veto power, Russia successfully broke off their Wishlist.

            Something you are somehow deliberately trying to minimize the successes of our Foreign Ministry, while not bothering yourself with examples of failure of the ministry. In my opinion, the work of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs under the leadership of Lavrov over the past three years is impeccable and clearly demonstrates great successes than the work of the US Foreign Ministry under Kerry, which has been predicted in all directions.

                American Foreign Ministry, or Urkainsky Foreign Ministry? Although both of them deserve your assessment of S.V. Lavrov)))

          I am joining. In the days of the USSR it was just that. The UN had two scales: one on the West, led by the United States, on the other the USSR with "social countries." The struggle was for third countries (Africa, etc.). Their “voices” were used as a “makeweight”, using all methods, including outright bribery and blackmail. For the past 25 years, the United States has become bogged down in its "exclusivity," completely "saddled" the UN. Now the world is starting to wake up, reaching for China and Russia, and the Americans are trying to maintain their "roof" over the UN by the previous methods.

    Mattress workers want to subjugate the UN structure to themselves if they cannot reorganize it. And leave yourself the main and only member of the UN, which has the right to decide the fate of countries.

    these actions undermine the foundations of the UN

    Under Ban Ki-moon, it became obvious that these foundations were already undermined, and in this body one country was dancing a girl with the support of its satellites. As they say it will not be worse, but there is hope that the representative of the United States will be more adequate.

    It is necessary to transfer UN structures to China or Russia. In any case, the UN structures are struck by corruption and protectionism, and there is no way to do without purging. Amoebas like Ban Ki-moon get sick.

    I don’t want to say anything bad about our Foreign Ministry, but here I don’t understand Zakharov. She said that she wanted to say that this is bad? Again the tricks of imperialism by the states?
    Let’s recall the story ... How Belarus and Ukraine got to the UN. Does everyone remember? Let me remind you - then Belarus and Ukraine were part of the USSR. And now one integral state puts up at the UN as many as 3 representatives with voting rights. Why do you think? What other country in the world could afford this? Imagine, for example, the United States and several of its states representing their interests at the UN. In the old days, Bulgaria also asked to join the USSR (it was like that), but refused because it was a member of the UN and had the right to vote. And the rest of the Warsaw Treaty countries, fully oriented to the USSR, what did the UN do? Show independence? - Well, do not tell my slippers. And the countries that we supported in exchange for a “correct” vote at the UN? And what is it called then? Then at the UN, the USSR had a very powerful lobby, and therefore the United States tried to destroy the UN. Today, Russia does not have such influence in the UN and the states naturally do everything possible to win over the majority. So dear Zakharova, these are all omissions in our international politics. And we need to criticize ...

    Maria, your authority, erudition and growth quite allow you to see and calculate everything far ahead. In no case is it possible to allow US dominance in UN bodies. In which case, contact Shoigu directly.

    UN rules must be executed in black and white. And that’s the point.
    Otherwise, this is not UN-a piece of paper and a name.

    The UN will face the same fate as the League of Nations in its time. This amorphous office is maintained as a platform for discussion, nothing more. While the main players this situation as a whole suits. What will happen next, let's see.
