Member countries of the “Big Seven” (G7) stated that they are committed to the reform of the UN Security Council (SC).

In addition, the G7 noted that they were deeply concerned about “Russia’s abuse of its position as a permanent member of the UN Security Council”, especially in the context of the events in Ukraine, reports RIA Novosti.

In April, the UN Committee on Information worked without delegates from Russia. The fact is that the United States did not issue visas to the Russian delegation. It was reported that there were no violations on the Russian side and visa requests were submitted in advance.

In early April, Russia announced the early resignation of the UNHRC. Formerly the General Assembly of the world organization suspended the work of the Russian Federation in its structure. The Kremlin said that the work of the Human Rights Council without the participation of the Russian Federation would be inferior, and the Russian Foreign Ministry called the decision of the General Assembly of the organization politicized.
