Opinion

The Russian Federation has a population of 143 million, an area of 6,592,735 square miles and a population density of 22 people per square mile. The Ukraine has a population of 46 million people (before the Russian invasion) and an area of 223,089 square miles with a population density of 194 people per square mile. Vladimir Putin’s aim was to overrun Ukraine, as if he does not have enough land, and to depose its government. He started the invasion on Feb. 24, 2022, and just over a year later, the war is still going on. In 2014, Putin annexed Crimea, then he decided to invade and conquer all of Ukraine — because he is an imperialist and wants to build a new Russian Empire. As a result, he is carrying out war crimes and systematic killings of the Ukrainian people. Whole cities have been ruined. Putin’s aim changed from the reported liberation of the Donas region to conquering all of Ukraine. He is, in my opinion, a war criminal and a blood-thirsty man. The United Nations was established on Oct. 24, 1945. The primary objective was maintenance of international peace and security — and the primary responsibility for maintaining the peace was placed on its Security Council. If the U.N. Security Council cannot bring peace and security in the face of the Russian invasion, let us get rid of the Security Council and put this burden on the 193 member nations to stop the war crimes in the Ukraine. Wake up United Nations, time is running out. Skip the lunches, dinners and cocktails in New York City and do something for the Ukrainian people. They are in desperate need. People are dying daily, and the United Nations is doing nothing about it. Who will hold the United Nations and its Security Council accountable and responsible for its role in the heinous crimes committed in Ukraine. Why do we have the United Nations and Security Council? Shame on them for not stopping the sufferings and atrocities in the Ukraine. — Joseph J. Jacob, Utica
