Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Tuesday called on the United Nations (UN) to act and reform its system, which gives the permanent member of the Security Council, Russia, a veto, saying everything must be done to ensure that the body works efficiently internationally.

“Where is the security that the Security Council must guarantee?” Zelenski asked via a video link, according to Reuters.

NATO enlargement cannot be subject to an “external veto”, such as that of Russia. This warning was sent on Thursday, January 27, 2022, by the Romanian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Bogdan Aurescu, in a statement to Digi 24.

The NATO Alliance has the right to decide on its own enlargement, as it did in 2007. This view is contradicted by Russia, which claims that the Alliance has come too close to its borders.

The most sensitive issue is Ukraine, which wanted to join NATO. Ukraine is the country that Russia does not want to see in NATO. In the context of the current tensions between Russia and Ukraine, some NATO countries are giving some support to Ukraine. But this country, not being a full member, cannot be defended by NATO soldiers.

Minister Aurescu specified, in this context, that it is excluded that Romania will send troops to Ukraine, in case Russia attacks Ukraine.
