Ukraine welcomes end of Russia’s term as UN Security Council president
Kyiv: Ukrainian UN Ambassador Sergiy Kyslytsya has welcomed the end of Russia’s monthly term as president of the UN Security Council.
The presidency of the council rotates between members every month, and in February was held by Russian ambassador Vassily Nebenzia.
“I’m looking forward to midnight, when this abomination, occupation of the seat of the president of the council will be over,” Kyslytsya wrote on Twitter earlier on Monday.
The UN Security Council’s powers include establishing peacekeeping operations, enacting international sanctions, and authorising military action.
