The United States will seek UN assistance

The United States is considering bringing the Ukrainian issue to the UN Security Council in the event of a worsening situation due to Russia’s fault, Foreign Policy reported, citing its sources.

The paper writes that while “the United States can do little at the United Nations to force Russia, which has a veto in the Security Council, to abandon the invasion of Ukraine,” President Joe Biden nevertheless hopes by publicly opposing Russia in the UN Security Council to draw the attention of the world community to the problem.

Biden would also like to “demonstrate Russia’s diplomatic isolation and, if possible, drive a wedge between Russia and its most powerful ally, China,” given China’s constant talks at the United Nations in defense of US territorial sovereignty around the world, the magazine notes.
