Washington reduces its contribution to UN funding

24
The United States this year will reduce its contribution to the financing of the UN, reports TASS Statement by Assistant US National Security Officer John Bolton.





Bolton explained that this step is connected with the decision of the United States to withdraw from the UN Human Rights Council (HRC), which allegedly biased the activities of the American authorities.

The White House is going to stop funding the Hrc,
said the presidential aide, adding that similar measures could follow in relation to other UN structures.

He noted that the American contribution is about 22% of the budget of the world organization. Some of these funds go to the maintenance of the HRC and the staff of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

And the US contributions to the UN budget this year will be less given these costs,
explained Bolton.

According to him, the American side will openly and specifically explain its actions and ensure that the Human Rights Council is affected.

Recall that in June, the United States Permanent Representative Nikki Haley announced her country's withdrawal from the HRC due to the fact that the Council biasedly evaluates the “track record” of the United States and Israel in the field of human rights.

On August 10, the UN General Assembly approved the appointment of Michelle Bachelet, the ex-president of Chile, to the post of high commissioner for human rights. She will take office on September 1 and will be on her next 4 of the year with the possibility of re-election.

    At the UN, there was simply not enough paper for the "track record" of states in whose internal affairs were poking their noses with the imposition of "democracy and freedoms" "ambassadors" from Uncle Sam. Hence the objectivity ... For reference: after the creation of the UN, 65 wars were unleashed and that's it in the interests of one country with a "track record"

      Instead of the HRC, the states would like to create a SPA (American Rights Council ... The rest of them (as a person) are of little interest. Not all Americans are Americans, what rights can they have?

          Washington reduces its contribution to UN funding

          Oh, well, the USA scared everyone so much that they just made everyone laugh!

          To such statements by the United States in the person of Nikki Haley to the UN Security Council in April 2018 of the year, Maria Zakharova answered Facebook with complete defeat - that the United States has long been in debtors. That the United States does not pay anywhere and nowhere and that, based on the American logic of making contributions to public organizations, the United States is not something to vote for, but no one should talk to the United States at the UN.
          These are:
          1. that “the amount of unpaid US contributions in the 2018 year (including for the 2017 year), including contributions to the UN regular budget, contributions to peacekeeping budgets and international tribunals, is 2 billion 278 million 520 thousand 306 dollars and 88 cents ";
          2) that the US debt to UNESCO, from which they left in the 2017 year, is more than $ 540 million.
          3) that "the public debt of the United States of America is $ 21 trillion, namely 106% of US GDP.

        In their universe, in general, only Americans are human beings, and not all kinds of them - before they were purely white individuals, and now they are made by all kinds of people of color and minority, and the opposite is happening with whites)))

      The United States does not recognize anyone’s jurisdiction, I think it will not matter to anyone what arises there.
      The UN, in general, is now bothering them more, they have already seen that they do not need any formal justification for their actions. Enough information companies in the media.

    The role of the States in the world is falling. Accordingly, contributions to the UN should be reduced. Moreover, it is argued that Americans are living worse and worse, and everything must be saved. Including the UN. On the other hand, this is a UN demonstration that if it is not obedient to the United States, then funding will continue to decline. feel

    Isn't it time to move the UN to another country, they have nothing to do in the most "democratic" country in the world. Although Moscow is not rubber, you can find a place in the suburbs. And we will be under our supervision and will defend against democratic attacks of any sixes. Well, about human rights
