Nuclear threat. Why it is important to abolish the right of veto in the UN and the EU

In 2014, when Ukrainian Crimea was annexed and when Russia attacked Ukraine in the east, after the “concern” of our partners, it became clear to me that this was the end of the “new fear world” paradigm based on respect for laws, rules, recognition freedom and human life as the highest values ​​of the free world.

At the heart of this crisis are the helplessness and the inability of the UN to fulfill its most important task – peacekeeping.

We definitely have to make a new step towards creating a new world. And this step is a waiver of the right of veto in the UN and the EU.

Of course, Russia in the UN or Hungary in the EU must vote for this. So it is a vicious circle… But this explicitly means that countries, which do not agree with evil, must leave the old, incapable of stopping the war, organizations such as the UN and create new ones.

It is a time for effective and decisive changes, a time to turn the page on history, a time to review and renew all principles and previously given oaths.
