RUSSIA ASSUMES UN SECURITY COUNCIL PRESIDENCY DESPITE UKRAINIAN ANGER.

Russia has taken the presidency of the United Nations Security Council despite Ukraine urging members to block the move.

Each of the council’s fifteen members takes up the presidency for a month, on a rotating pattern.

The last time Russia had the presidency, February 2022, it launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

It means the Security Council is being led by a country whose president is subject to an international arrest warrant for alleged war crimes.

The other permanent members of the council are the United Kingdom, United States, France, and China.
