U N O UNABLE TO PROTECT UKRAINIANS
United Nations has now discussed the grave Ukrainian crisis two times in recent days, with the UN Secretary General and U N President speaking eloquently about the need for world peace, respect for U N charter and international law and finally both of them concluded their speech in United Nations stating “peace is must” and “enough is enough”.
However, the proceedings in the United Nations has not helped Ukraine and it’s citizens in anyway in protecting themselves against the Russian attack , making one suspect whether U N O is virtually reducing itself to a mere debating forum .
The Ukrainian representative in UNO ,while speaking in
UNO, made a telling statement that “ if Ukraine would not survive, then UNO would not survive”. This statement not only reflects the anger and frustration of Ukrainian representative but also reflect the views and opinions of very large section of world population.
There is an increasing world wide view and concern that USA and NATO countries and other concerned countries are moving at snail’s pace inspite of the gravity of the situation , instead of coming to the rescue of Ukraine with high sense of urgency .
The desperate Ukrainians facing death due to Putin’s attack and friends and family members of those who have already lost their lives , wonder that even as lives are being lost, which cannot be brought back, is there time left for the concerned world to save Ukraine ?
While UNO has become an ineffective organisation , with Putin being defiant and unconcerned, measures and some sanctions have to be reinforced with direct intervention by the concerned countries .
Many think that NATO countries want to make Putin behave even as they want to keep the supply chain for natural gas and crude oil from Russia intact. If this would really be the reason for not directly confronting Putin, then it would mean that the concerned countries are really not so concerned as they profess.
