MOSCOW, June 26. /TASS/. The US is trying to squeeze "anti-Nazi beginnings" out from the UN, State Duma’s Committee on International Affairs Chairman Alexey Pushkov said on Friday.
"Anti-Nazi beginnings are being squeezed out of the UN," Pushkov said.
"Unfortunately, basic UN principles are ignored," he noted. "It is not beneficial for the US because of Ukraine," Pushkov said. "In general, it is not beneficial for US and countries around it as one of the ideological bases of the UN because it makes them feel guilty, and they don’t want that," Pushkov added.
However, UN has no alternative and remains the main guarantor of international law, Pushkov stressed. "We are talking about a possibility of reforming the UN and its Security Council, but no one is talking about creating a principally new organization," he said. "The fact that the UN has no alternative makes the organization the key feature of the modern world and the main conditional guarantor of international law," Pushkov said.
