The Russian special military operation in Ukraine has shown that the UN Security Council needs to be reformed. This was stated by Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida. In particular, Kishida referred to the right of veto.

In a speech to the parliamentary committee, Japan’s Prime Minister Fumio Kishida announced that the situation in Ukraine and Russia’s actions show that the UN Security Council needs to be reformed, thereby creating a new world order. Literally it said:

“The rage of Russia, which is a permanent member of the UN Security Council, shows that a new world order must be organized.”

According to Kishida, Japan has always believed that the use of the veto should be exercised with maximum self-control. The Japanese Prime Minister emphasized:

“Together with countries that are positive about reform, we will continue our efforts to reform the Security Council and reform the UN.”

Kishida cited the failed resolution condemning the Russian special operation as an example of the inefficiency of the UN Security Council. On February 26, Russia vetoed the resolution in a vote. According to the voting results, 11 members of the Security Council supported the resolution, one country opposed it, and three countries, including China, abstained.

On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the start of a military operation in Ukraine. He explained that it was necessary “to protect the people who have been mistreated and murdered by the Kiev regime for eight years”. In response to the operation, the US, EU and other countries began imposing sanctions on Russia. These apply to individuals as well as to Russian companies and banks.
