It's a bit of a nothing thing really.
The Security Council is not a forum for conducting war by other means. If the Ukrainians are unable to work with Russia then that is their problem, not Russia's and not any other Security Council member's - except in so far as Ukraine's attitudes cause problems with the work of the group.

This is for Ukraine to mess up (or get right), not any other party.

Actually, andrewfi - I beg to differ. Russia's actions in Crimea would be confirmed as an illegal act - subject to enforcement, sanctions - but for Russia's veto ...


I am sure Ukraine will remind us of the farce that is a 'veto' by the UN Sec Council permanent members.

Please read what I wrote. Ask your current target for assistance, she maybe has a decent ability to comprehend what she reads. I hope so, it  is likely to be a survival skill if you are able to get her to the UK.

Standard, andrewfi - The correct response should be, 'I got what you meant, but I'll deflect from your observation'..

Ask your current target for assistance, she maybe has a decent ability to comprehend what she reads. I hope so, it  is likely to be a survival skill if you are able to get her to the UK.

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt when it comes to reading ability - it has been posted on here a few times - 'my current target' - future Wife - has no desire to live in the UK.
