Ukraine called on the member states of the United Nations to resume the application of its Charter on the issue of the legitimacy of the Russian Federation's presence in the organization, to deprive the Russian Federation of its status as a permanent member of the UN Security Council and to exclude it from the UN as a whole.

This is stated in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine statement.

It also states: "the Russian Federation has never gone through the legal procedure for acquiring membership and takes the place of the USSR in the UN Security Council illegally. From a legal and political point of view, there can be only one conclusion: Russia is a usurper of the Soviet Union's place in the UN Security Council."

"It is time to discuss the role of the Russian Federation in the democratic world. For every bomb, missile, death, energy terror. I appeal to the world diplomatic team with a request to exclude the Russian Federation from the status of a permanent member of the UN and UNESCO to restore security and peace in the European Union and beyond," said the Minister of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine Oleksandr Tkachenko.

Due to the full-scale Russian invasion and the aggressive policy of Moscow, Russia's actions are discrediting and destroying the entire UN system. That is why the question of the fate of the Russian Federation in the UN should be resolved in the general context of its responsibility for gross violations of the norms and principles of international law. And also for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide in Ukraine.

It will be recalled that the ICIP appealed to UNESCO to exclude the Russian Federation from the organization because Russia is deliberately and systematically destroying Ukrainian cultural and historical heritage, as well as social infrastructure. Excluding Russia from UNESCO would officially declare a violation of international law by the aggressor country. In this case, the Russian Federation would lose the possibility of international cultural cooperation.

Previously, UNESCO refused to exclude the Russian Federation from the organization, arguing that all states have the right to membership in UNESCO and can be deprived of it only in case of exclusion from the UN.
