In China, they told how Russia turned into embarrassment the triumph of Ukraine in the UN

Ukraine and the United States failed in their attempt to outplay Russia in UNsay experts from the Chinese edition of Baijiahao.

Ukraine, USA and their allies tried to neutralize the effect of referendums on the accession to Russia of the Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics, as well as the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions.

“Western countries refused to recognize the results of the referendums, which resulted in the inclusion of four regions into the Russian Federation. Against this background, the United States initiated a vote in the UN on a draft resolution condemning Russia’s actions,” the article says in a Chinese publication (translated by PolitRussia).

Since the referenda could not be prevented, the United States and Ukraine tried to strike at a meeting of the UN Security Council. They offered vote for a resolution on non-recognition of the referendum results.

Kyiv and Washington hoped to provoke a negative reaction against Russia from the international community. However, instead of a triumphant vote on the resolution, embarrassment awaited its initiators.

On the vote on the resolution a number of states refrained from expressing their opinion. These countries included China and India. And when it was Russia’s turn, it used its trump card and vetoed the resolution.

“Russia is a permanent member of the Security Council, in accordance with the provisions of the UN Charter has the right to veto. It is, much to the displeasure of Washington and Kyiv, used her trump card and blocked the resolution“, – noted the experts of the Chinese edition.

Note that the fact that Russia has the right to veto in the UN Security Council has long irritated the United States and its allies. And the current Kyiv regime is even more so.

That is why periodically there are ideas about reforming the Security Council, in the sense that in some way to interfere with the legitimate rights of Russia. True, how to do this, in the West they cannot think of.

Attempts to realize the idea in spite of everything are fraught with the most unpredictable consequences. Therefore, the United States and its allies are limited only to discussions on the topic.
