The United Nation’s double roles in the Ukraine
Palabras clave:United Nations, roles, Ukraine
Generally, when one thinks about the United Nations (which is not very often) one tends to think of the institution as a whole. One thinks of the United Nations. Any positive or negative thoughts about it tend to taint the whole Organization. One either likes or dislikes the UN as a whole. And, because most media focus is on the big news and the big events, then most of our thoughts are dominated by the activities of the Security Council. And because most of the news is about the Big Five vetoing each other’s proposals then we are left with the impression that the UN gets nothing done, that it is not very useful. Through a revision of the case of the current war in Ukraine, the purpose of this essay is to show that this is neither correct nor helpful.
