Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matvienko recognized the need to reform the United Nations, but only with a global consensus. She wrote about this in an article for Izvestia.

“The UN is simply obliged to adapt to the new realities, and there are no irreconcilable opponents of its reform in the international community,” the chairman of the Federation Council explained.

Nevertheless, the countries have not yet found a consensus on how the organization should be reformed, and, according to Valentina Matvienko, the international community will not be able to agree soon. At the same time, the speaker of the upper house noted that Russia’s position on this issue is consistent.

“We are aware of the need to improve the UN and at the same time we believe that any steps in this direction must be carefully thought out and balanced,” Valentina Matvienko noted.

October 24 is the UN Day, established by the General Assembly of the organization in 1947 and timed to coincide with the anniversary of the entry into force of its Charter. The UN is an international organization of states created to maintain and strengthen peace, security, and develop cooperation between countries.
