Official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Russian Federation Maria Zakharova commented on the statement of the press secretary of the White House Karine Jean-Pierre about the plans of the United States America achieve the exclusion of Moscow from the permanent membership of the United Nations Security Council.

“If there was a way to take over the universe, they would immediately begin this too. There is simply no such way, thank God. Otherwise, they would have immediately transgressed to all this, ”she wrote in her Telegram channel.

As previously reported by the Public News Service, Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky called for depriving the Russian Federation of rights vote in the UN Security Council and veto its decisions.

Speaking via video link at an emergency meeting of the world organization’s Security Council, convened at the request of the Kyiv regime, Zelensky explained his demand to deprive Russia of the right to veto UN Security Council decisions by saying that these measures would help restore “justice within the structure of the organization.”

It should be noted that Russia systematically opposes the virtual participation of the Ukrainian leader in the meetings of the UN Security Council, since this is a violation of the provisions of the procedure. According to Moscow’s position, Zelensky should be present in person.
