American expert: Anti-Russian coalition in the UN faced serious problems

76

The United States-created global anti-Russian coalition at the UN has faced serious challenges. This conclusion was made by an expert on international issues Ted Carpenter in an article for the American edition of The National Interest.


Carpenter drew attention to the fact that on March 2, the vote at the UN General Assembly on a resolution demanding Russia to stop the special operation in Ukraine went clearly not according to the American scenario. If Washington knew that Russia and three or four other countries would vote against the resolution, they clearly did not expect such a large number of "abstentions".

According to the expert, the United States attaches great importance to the creation of an overwhelming majority that opposes Russia, but this time they clearly ran into problems. Attention is drawn to the fact that not only 35 countries were included in the number of abstentions, but the fact that in their ranks the key countries of East and South Asia, i.e. China and India.

Because the US attaches so much importance to building an overwhelming coalition against Moscow, it takes a certain amount of courage for other countries to refuse to join it. And yet 35 countries refused to butter up the United States and opted instead to abstain.

writes Carpenter.

The last vote showed that other countries no longer support American decisions so unconditionally, and in the case of China, the situation is “generally bad,” given the cooperation between Beijing and Moscow. Not everything is so simple with India, which is a longtime partner of Russia. According to the author, now the chances of the United States to somehow "realistically punish" Russia have significantly decreased.

On March 2, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution condemning Russia's actions in Ukraine. 141 countries voted for the resolution, 35 abstained, and five countries voted against it - Russia itself, Belarus, Syria, North Korea and Eritrea.

    Well, it’s time for the members of the coalition to understand that, following the lead of the United States, they thereby signed that they also agree that they have no rights before the United States and agree that they will do the same to them, against which they will not even resent . And some, as it were, do not agree with this already, so they abstain. The point here is not even in Russia.

      I completely agree with you! For the smart and not so smart, Russia is conducting a special operation, but in fact the US hegemony to rule the world is breaking on its knee! Everything is at stake on the part of Russia, and I really believe that everything will be fine!

          From the point of view of the Western “Gay Minority”, their “new vision of gender identity” and “new understanding of family values” may be the solution for China and India to the problem of overpopulation.

      Good. Well, let's say not quietly and peacefully. After the construction of the Power of Siberia, it became clear that there would not be enough capacity for the second branch (different fields with SP1-2 and power). ).When SS 2 is launched and merged with the Kamchatka-Khabarovsk-PRC branch, American LNG suppliers in the Asian region fly off the run. They refocus on the EU, Then the most terrible times will come for the EU. it’s straining at PS 2, the costs have been repaid, well, we won’t get a little, but the torpedo under Europe has already gone today. Today, both Ukrainian branches are blocked (for transgas, the order to reduce pressure passed a week ago). Today, the valves at the border are at a stop.

    Anti-Russian coalition in the UN faced serious problems
    I hope that over time the so-called. coalitions will grow. Unprecedented pressure on Russia from the Anglo-Saxons and their frank sixes on the "foundation" of frank and cynical lies seasoned with terry Russophobia, sooner or later should backfire. I am surprised at the endurance of our diplomats at all international venues and their ability to still talk calmly with scumbags from politics.

      It's time for Russian diplomats to be awarded the "Hero of Russia" (if there is one)
      Oh, it was not in vain that the United States was worried that they did not have 100% support in the UN. Well this is such a bell - they lose influence! The further you go, the less it will be.

    If Washington knew that Russia and three or four other countries would vote against the resolution, they clearly did not expect such a large number of "abstentions".
    I watched it on TV - WESTERN reporters took it from the muzhikobaba Merikatosovskaya, who represents this vile state in the UN and her / his name is Linda Thomas-Greenfield - so it began to stutter from such an unexpected reaction of the "abstentions".

    American expert: Anti-Russian coalition in the UN faced serious problems

    While most countries are afraid of the United States, and China, a so-so ally, could vote against it, but the influence of the United States is gradually fading away. The future of the United States and its satellites will depend on how events in Ukraine end.

      In the social networks of China, about half do not approve of the actions of the Russian Federation, which is probably why official Beijing abstains.

    In fact, the main decisions in the UN are made and blocked by the UN Security Council, in which the Russian Federation has the right of veto and not controlled by China. Everything else is recommendation.

    Regarding the UN, there is an essential point that must be repeated under the Western chambers: the Russian Federation inherits not only a place in the UN, but also a mission that includes maintaining a balance around itself according to its own rules.
    "Russia will always act in its historical right of world civilization, bringing peace and justice to the peoples in the highest sense. We do not need an international or some kind of arbitrator. We - Russia - in our historical right are the winners of three world wars. We are the victorious people , now we are preventing the (third) world war - we are destroying the right-wingers of this war, we are liquidating the base of these right-wingers.We bring peace and justice, as we created this post-war world: we are responsible for this world.We have the sacred mission of the victor of fascism - to prevent the repetition of Nazism and world war.
    The fact that we established the UN does not mean that we have abandoned our historical right in favor of the UN. We have not transferred our right and responsibility to anyone". D.V. Rode 4.03 (we had to coordinate the proposals, you can find the original in YouTube watch?v=4ZI9Hxy24ZA from 1:26:30)

    141 countries voted to protect the Nazis. So maybe it's worth adding them to the list of unfriendly countries?

      It looks like just those who are in a hurry to just die. Previously, pharaohs were buried in a place with concubines, servants, horses, and dogs. These 140 seem to be the same servants, animals and all sorts of small garbage. Who voluntarily agreed to die in a place with their "pharaoh". And he is old, sick, already blown away by the wind.
