Poland offers to reform the UN Security Council because of situation in Ukraine

The UN Security Council turns out to be ineffective in the matter of the crisis in Ukraine and should be reformed. This opinion was expressed by the UN General Assembly President of Poland Bronislaw Komorowski.

The Latvian President Andris Berzins calls to prevent "frozen conflict" in Ukraine.

According to him, it should be helped to keep the unity of the country and tackle the conflicts in the region.

The Latvian leader addressed to Russia with a call to withdraw its troops from Ukraine and stop supporting terrorists.

Many criticize even the United Nations itself.

"When the international community you represent, is ignoring people"s suffering and is unable to resolve the situation, it undermines the effectiveness of the UN and expands the way for terrorism", said Laurent Fabius, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of France.

There are also calls for radical changes. The President of Poland, Bronislaw Komorowski, proposed to reform the UN Security Council.

According to him, as the body responsible for peace, it turned out to be ineffective. The recent conflicts in Ukraine and abroad prove it.

The Polish leader urged to limit Russia"s ability to veto decisions relating to Eastern Europe.

"Ideological background of the conflict go back to the rhetoric of the first half of the last century. They are caused by the distribution of zones of influence. Such a situation requires rethinking the foundations of civilized international order," said Bronislaw Komorowski, the President of Poland.

The offer to overhaul the principles of agency was supported by representatives of other countries.

Russia responded immediately. The Deputy Permanent Representative of Russia to the UN Alexander Pankin said they were ready to discuss the reform of the UN Security Council.

The fear of Russian aggression does not subside.

The annexation of Crimea threatens the security of Romania, says the Prime Minister.

"The current situation in Ukraine ignites extreme concern in my country and affects the security of Europe. As you know, this crisis began with the unilateral annexation of Crimea, an integral part of the territory of Ukraine", said Victor Ponta, the Prime Minister of Romania.

Ukraine is discussed outside the UN General Assembly too.

The Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel again opposed military solution to the conflict. She continues to insist on resolving the situation diplomatically, including using sanctions.

The European Union and the Group of Seven promised new restrictions, including coordinated sectoral sanctions. Of course, if Russia suddenly does not begin to implement Minsk agreement.
