Ukraine became a member of the Security Council for two years by decision of the UN General Assembly in new York – 177 votes.
“This vote demonstrated a truly global level of international support of Ukraine”, – said the President Petro Poroshenko. He also added that he hoped that membership in the Council will help to return the Crimea and the Donbass. In turn, the President promised to devote considerable attention to providing legal guarantees of security for the countries that got rid of nuclear weapons, peacekeeping and combating terrorism.
Also in the Security Council for 2016-2017 entered Egypt, Uruguay, Japan and Senegal. Now in new York continues 70th session of the UN General Assembly.
