Poroshenko calls for stripping Russia of veto right in UNSC
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko declares the need for reforming the United Nations and depriving Russia of its veto right in the Security Council.
"The UN requires immediate reform: to deprive the aggressor state of its veto right. And another question is that we need to increase the effectiveness of security of other alliances, including NATO, including further opening the door to Ukraine into this security alliance," the president said in an interview with Ukrainian TV channels.
