UNITED NATIONS, September 28./TASS/. Unilateral sanctions imposed bypassing the United Nations Charter is a method to remove rivals from the market, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a speech at the 70th session of the United Nations General Assembly.
"However, today sanctions which bypass the United Nations Charter have become commonplace. Apart from pursuing political goals, they are also used as a method to remove rivals from the market," Putin stressed.
Quite recently, it seemed that "in economy ruled by objective market laws we will learn to go without demarcation lines and will act on the basis of transparent and jointly agreed rules, including the WTO principles, which provide for free trade, investments and open competition," Putin said.
The activity of any state in bypassing resolutions of the United Nations Organization is illegitimate, Russian President Vladimir Putin went on to say.
"The sole center of domination" emerged in the world after the end of Cold War, Putin said. "And then those, who found themselves at the top of that pyramid, felt a temptation to think that if they are so strong and exceptional, they know better than everybody else what to do, and thus (as they believe) it is not necessary to reckon with the UN, which often only ‘stands in the way’ instead of automatically sanctioning, legalizing the necessary decision," Putin said.
He reminded the audience that decisions discussed by the United Nations were approved or not approved as resolutions. "As diplomats say, get through or don’t get through," he said.
"Any activity of any state in bypassing this order is illegitimate and is at variance with the UN Charter and present-day international law," the Russian leader said.
