The UN has become an organization of disengaged nations: will it learn from the pandemic?

The UN has become an organization of disengaged nations: will it learn from the pandemic?

The talk that the United Nations in its current form and status has turned, rather, into some kind of completely decorative and even somewhere parasitic entity than into an effective and at least somewhat legitimate instrument of international politics, has been silent for quite some time. Alas, the UN’s actions during the coronavirus pandemic only confirm their validity.


It would seem that a colossal world crisis could be a chance for this structure to have a “new beginning”, a restart and, to a certain extent, a revival. In the end, here it is a real reason to unite all countries under the auspices of the same World Health Organization to solve very specific and extremely urgent tasks. However, the functionaries of the organization, apparently, managed to fail this exam.

Over the past decades, the UN has failed to prevent or stop a single military conflict, often, indulging in the inaction and silence of the organization of aggression against sovereign states, its members and their actual destruction. This, albeit with a great exaggeration, can be “blamed” on the organization’s lack of real levers for practical opposition to world powers in such situations. For example, they would try the “blue helmets” to stand in the way of the US army in Iraq or stop NATO in Libya itself ... On the other hand, in this case the question arises - why then do we need a powerless “office” created in accordance with its charter just for "maintaining peace in the world"?

But, God bless her, with the war - now the situation is fundamentally different. All states of the world are opposed by the same adversary - invisible, but deadly. If humanity has not yet rejected the ideas of solidarity, mutual assistance, “common values”, then it is time, having forgotten any contradictions and disputes, to direct efforts to fight the disease that kills people, regardless of skin color, citizenship and religion. Here it is - truly a finest hour for the unification of all nations, all peoples!

In fact, everything, for the most part, happens in a diametrically opposite way: the borders that were three months ago open wide shut tightly, each country tries to shut itself off from everyone else and isolate itself to the maximum, completely giving a damn about what happens even to its closest neighbors. Moreover - we already have a lot of examples of how representatives of one country not only didn’t help those suffering from the same disaster on the other side of the cordon, but deprived them of medical necessities. History with protective masks for Italy, "somehow" found themselves in the Czech Republic more than eloquent.

At the same time, a huge number of sanctions, restrictions and embargoes continue to apply in the world, imposed by the leading geopolitical players of the West and in the current situation turning not just into inconvenience, but into a deadly noose around the neck of countries desperately struggling with a pandemic. The clearest example is Iran, a country where the virus continues to rage. However, even the most brutal suffering of its inhabitants does not seem to cause sympathy in the West.

On March 26, Russia introduced a resolution to the UN General Assembly aimed at consolidating the efforts of the entire world community in the fight against the pandemic. In particular, it provides for the organization, under the auspices of WHO, of the exchange of the most relevant information on the most effective measures for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19, the development and launch of real mechanisms for international assistance to the regions and countries most affected by the disease. A number of other concrete steps are also proposed to solve the most urgent problem for the whole of humanity now. One of them is the immediate rejection of any "trade wars" and sanctions, against whomever they are directed, the cessation of the vicious practice of "discrimination against peoples, states and any persons in connection with a pandemic."

So far, all these initiatives remain the voice of one crying in the desert. Concerning them, “consultations” are going on, in which, as you know, you can chat and “drown” any good undertaking. Real assistance to the countries that are experiencing the most powerful blows from the epidemic is provided by China and Russia - without any "international mechanisms", solely by decision of their own authorities and their own initiative. Typically, the UN Secretary-General António Guterres has already approached the leaders of the GXNUMX member countries with similar proposals - at least regarding the lifting of sanctions. His appeal was also ignored. Political ambition is more important ...

Alas, the role of the UN in resolving the unprecedented current crisis can be called practically zero. Once this structure was founded by countries that won the Second World War. Perhaps the states whose contribution to taming the coronavirus pandemic will be most significant will be able to restart the organization for its effective work, and not for show?

        Yes, she, alas, is weak, fragmented. torn apart by contradictions, but forcedly necessary: it was there that countries, nevertheless, established the rules of behavior and relations, and generally determined what is “good” and what is “bad”.

        Coordination of actions of all countries in our overpopulated world is an objective necessity and it will always and anyway be in one form or another.

        The situation with Iran, of course, is simply SCOTSKY and it is on the conscience of the United States

          The UN was created with the direct participation of the USSR. And so there was someone to oppose the big players. And lawlessness was less. And the rules were dictated by the strength and authority of the country of the Soviets.

            The UN was created by Roosevelt and the then State Department, Hull, as a kind of world government, close to the current European Union. Since this idea was a delirium of deeply sick people, the UN quickly reformatted into a platform where the powers could resolve their differences. She never had her own weight, and the powers could take this boltology into account, they could not take it.

            With the collapse of the USSR, the UN became a venue for freaks like Greta. Neither China nor the EU, for various reasons, consider it necessary to use it to resolve issues with the United States.

              Iran asked to lift the sanctions in order to buy not specifically medicine, but what he himself considers necessary. On the example of Russia, it is clearly visible that the state does not need medical products of this type; on the contrary, they are ready to send them anywhere but their country.

    Heh guys, that’s what ... See what the EU has become ... Even now, it’s not about how the Germans and Poles stole masks sent to Italy:
    After boorish accusations of "cheap PR" by senior EU officials, the Chinese company Huawei withdraws aid to European countries. “Thanked. Huawei sent millions of protective masks to needy countries in Europe: a million to Spain, 800 to hospitals and nursing homes in the Netherlands ... But an EU top official accused Huawei of cheap PR. Huawei apologized and said that he wouldn’t do this again ", - comment on the story in social networks.
    Chinese company Huawei recalls assistance to European countries after statements EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell. The latter called the help of a Chinese company "cheap PR."
    We are talking about a million protective masks sent by Huawei to Spain, as well as 800 thousand masks for hospitals and nursing homes in the Netherlands. Josep Borrell called Chinese aid a "generosity policy" and a public relations company, suspecting malicious intent.
    A spokesman for Huawei said the company was not going to pursue any "generosity policies." He emphasized that his company does not want to have anything to do with political showdowns, therefore, it turns off assistance to Europe.
    We will put an end to our mask donation program here in Europe, a Huawei spokesman said in an interview with EURACTIV.

        So I say that the case is not an isolated one. Serbia, it seems, was completely blocked by any procurement of medicines - yeah, union, itit-pound! Okay, still the UN, the EU was considered virtually one country - and now there they are not throwing at each other with forks. At the same time, they do not forget to fill their pockets - there was already a case, doctors in Italy printed out 3D filters for mechanical ventilation on a 1D printer - well, they can’t be reached! All - in court for copyright infringement! Malats, their mother ... By the way, it’s also good - printed - the cost of 10 bucks, the purchase price of 000. I would like to hear the opinion of heaped up how people steal in medicine and profit from the health of ordinary citizens ...

            While earlier reporting said the original valve cost over $ 10,000

            The article is about this incident in Italy.

              Are you good with English? smile Or did you rely on someone?
              According to your link, everything that you wrote is refuted as false information.
              There is not the slightest speech about the prosecution for the manufacture of filters, at a cost of several euros, by the way, what is written there, the figure of 10000 is refuted there.
              The manufacturer is committed to providing hospitals with filters as much as possible, including for free.
              But the company cannot participate in the work of volunteers who printed these filters, passing them the drawings, since the drawings are the property of the company, and it is bound by the rules for the production of medical equipment.
              Just to confirm that recent reports from Italy are totally incorrect, we were contacted at the end of last week for manufacturing details of a valve accessory but could not supply these due to medical manufacturing regulations, we have categorically not threatened to sue anyone involved. The valve is an accessory supplied as part of a CPAP Hood system which alone costs a few euros.

                Ah, have they already riveted a rebuttal? I look at the original article below - everything, as I said, has not re-read the article since then ... Well, I see that they didn’t say the exact price, but decided to submit it to the court - they almost ate them there, the scandal was notable

                  I think you obviously have not read the article.
                  there are the words of the volunteers themselves
                  there was nothing like it
                  the only thing is that the company did not transmit the blueprints.
                  and below is the same original article from another publication, which is refuted by the very participants in the events.
                  Actually, the original article is based on the statement of a person who popularizes the use of 3D printers, it is primarily about this.
                  By the way, information about the persecution and the cost of the device was later refuted in the original edition
                  Infine, Intersurgical Spa ha voluto chiarire come il costo della valvola non sia di 10 mila euro (come erroneamente riportato da Business Insider, quello sarebbe stato il costo dello stampo per la produzione industriale del pezzo), ma trattasi di un accessorio “che normalmente costa "pochi euro e che in questo contesto di emergenza viene inviata gratuitamente insieme ai caschi."

                  https://it.businessinsider.com/esplode-la-richiesta-per-le-valvole-per-i-rianimatori-stampate-in-3d-sottobanco-ma-con-lok-del-ministero-dellinnovazione/
                  last paragraph
                  It says that these filters are usually delivered free of charge complete with a mask.
                  The cost of 10 is not the cost of a filter, but a mold for its manufacture.

                    I don’t know Italian, I didn’t read it.

                      The original article is also in Italian.
                      Volunteers are not students, I don’t know why you got this.
                      moreover, more recently, they were
                      doctors in Italy printed out 3D filters for mechanical ventilation on a XNUMXD printer - well, you can’t get them! All - in court for copyright infringement!
                      smile
                      but they are not doctors.
                      And they don’t have any “amicable agreement” for the simple reason that this question has never been raised because of cheap filters.
                      But the formalities are met.
                      They have confirmation of the “State of Necessity” of saving lives, approved by the Minister of Technological Innovations and Digital Technologies Paola Pisano, with whom they have direct contact. To comply with legal formalities, the ministry’s lawyers organized a special system - the hospital sends a request for the purchase of filters, it receives an answer that the application cannot be satisfied at the moment and the printed filters are being used further because of a vital need.
                      Do not forget that the filters are not certified, which means that surviving patients may have complaints against doctors for violating medical rules, oddly enough this sounds.
                      The author of the original statement about the prosecution in the article by your link said that he had not heard the conversation, but he personally suggested that, in principle, they could be prosecuted for patent infringement.

    . See what the EU has become

    How about that?
    Several members of the European Parliament from the Green / European Free Alliance faction, representing Germany, called on the EU leadership to deal with the disinformation campaign about COVID-19, which Russia is allegedly conducting. Without proving a single concrete fact, the EP members, with energy worthy of another application, expressed concern about “ongoing misinformation and propaganda efforts, especially from China and Russia. For most of us observing the situation, it is obvious that attempts are being made to undermine the EU and spread distrust among the local population and European neighbors towards the EU, its democratic values ​​and institutions. ”

    The parliamentarians found it possible to replace the concrete facts and testimonies with a reference to the conclusions made by the staff of a certain analytical unit of the EU East StratCom Task Force, and called: “We must continue to take their many years of experience as a basis for revealing propaganda myths and disinformation strategies.”

    The “Eurasian Rhythm” has already reported similar accusations against Russia from European politicians and the media of Great Britain, Poland, Lithuania and even Italy, to which Moscow is directly assisting in overcoming the formidable danger. Moreover, the line is the same for everyone: to replace the subject of conversation and not to talk about serious miscalculations of their governments in the fight against coronavirus, but to accuse Russia of trying to "destroy the cohesion of allies in NATO", "to sow distrust of democratic values ​​and EU institutions," etc.

    A voice came from across the ocean. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused Russia, China and Iran of intentionally misinforming citizens and discrediting US efforts to combat the coronavirus pandemic. According to Pompeo, these countries use the spread of false information "to belittle what America is doing."

    Even now it’s not about how the Germans and Poles stole masks sent to Italy:

    Actually.
    1. Stolen masks in Italy were found in the Czech Republic, and not in Germany.
    2. These masks, judging by the materials of the investigation, stole and resold in 10 ways ... the Chinese are the contractors of this charitable undertaking. In any case, the Czech Republic and Italy are not on their way from China, so the Chinese either stole humanitarian aid on the way, or the Italians themselves already from warehouses in Italy. Nothing personal, business is business.

      And where else can I complain / express concern. Like not at the UN.
      In joining the opinion of many, I believe that the UN headquarters should be transferred from America, but not to Europe.
      The UN was effective. When there was a REALLY bipolar world. Today, the influence of the Russian Federation is not comparable with the influence and authority of the USSR.
      Plus corruption that corrodes ANY structure.

    There would be no happiness, but unhappiness helped to understand that such international organizations as the UN, NATO, OSCE, WADA are a bunch of useless irresponsible talkers who hide behind their alleged significance.

    Alas, the role of the UN in resolving the unprecedented current crisis can be called practically zero.

    The whole point of the article in one phrase.
    But in fact, this organization is something like "Horns and Hooves"
    UN over the past decades has failed to prevent or stop a single military conflict, often, indulging in their inaction and silence the organization of aggression against sovereign states, its members and their actual destruction.

    Without reform, it will remain so, but apparently it suits almost everyone
    In a word, the organization has turned into another dummy
    While she is in the territory of Sasha, the sense of her ZERO

    To control something, real leverage is needed. From the moment the USSR merged, the UN has completely lost its operational functionality. She could act only on condition that her decisions are supported by at least one of the two forces that dominate the world.
    Due to the fact that the brains and considerations of world leaders are, let’s say, sparse, for some time the UN posed as an independent force. However, this situation could not last forever. And once the only dominant force simply required complete submission. The UN refused. From this moment, the organization does not solve anything.
    However, it is on the balance sheet of the United States, and its existence is beneficial to the rest, primarily to us. It’s good that the enemy has a suitcase without a handle in his hands) But to listen, and even more so to obey the UN decisions is stupid. There will be no "restart", it is simply not seriously needed by anyone.

    If the UN, being in the territory of the United States and under its pressure and control, has completely degraded, why not Russia, together with China, take the initiative and create an alternative international organization, at least to offer it. Or try to create a regional one for the BRICS countries and solve together coordinated pandemic problems in your region problems with armed conflicts in your region before the introduction of blue helmets for breeding conflicting parties. After all, in Syria, where the Western coalition has managed, it was possible to restore order in most regions. If successful, many other countries will catch up and also support this initiative and join it.

      There are two.
      1. The EU.
      2. NATO.
      Another thing is that an effective organization differs from an ineffective one in that it implements understandable interests in understandable situations with understandable tools, and does not creep into each barrel. This is strength, this is weakness. The EU does not have military force; NATO does not have a political expansionist project. Somewhere they support each other (Yugoslavia was bombed by NATO, but the EU digests it), somewhere there are only NATO fists (the Middle East, it turns out badly), somewhere only the EU’s concern (the post-USSR, it doesn’t work at all).

    There is no sense from the UN for a long time. The idea of ​​creating the organization was correct, but as often happens “It was smooth on paper, but forgot about the ravines, and walk along them.”

    Pompeo contrived a call to tighten sanctions against the DPRK after the G-7 meeting to fight the epidemic.
    Although he may be beaten and right - sanctions and the termination of all ties with such as the G-7 is the best way to save his country from the virus.
