Committee: United Nations Security Council
Topic: Situation in Ukraine

The matter of international security and relations is of utmost importance to every member state in the United Nations. The very purpose of the United Nations is to maintain and strengthen the security and bond between nations, and as this council is its principle organ, this council must work together in order to come to an agreement on a divisive issue, as is our job. In 2014, the democratically elected President Yanukovych of Ukraine was ousted in an illegal coup. Thus began the downward spiral of Ukraine into authoritarianism. The military seizure of power led to the government of Ukraine being taken over by radical nationalists, with full support of the west. Ukraine has since been further and further pulled into the pit of nationalism, so much so that modern Ukraine has found itself as a Neo-Nazi state. The militant alliance of the west, with NATO as its figurehead, thus began its support for Ukraine. To western nations, all that is seen about Ukraine is how it can be used as a chess piece in the game to ostracize The Russian Federation. The United Nations Security council cannot wait any longer to act. The people of Ukraine must be freed from the oppressive grasp of tyranny, and relations must be restored.

The Russian Federation has moved quickly to liberate its sister state, as is its right as stated in Chapter VII; Article 42 of the United Nations charter. “[If diplomacy is] proved to be inadequate, it may take action by air, sea, or land forces of Members of the United Nations.” The Special Military operation is the Russian Federation’s effort to protect the Ukrainian people and to denazify Ukraine. The Russian Federation has liberated parts of Eastern Ukraine and allowed for self-government of these regions, such as enabling the formation of The People’s Republics of Donetsk and Luhansk, through a referendum with a wide margin of approval. These regions openly asked The Russian Federation for help, and were given enough support in order to break the chain of oppression by the Ukrainian Neo-Nazi government. Furthermore, these Republics have asked to join the federation, in order to ensure support and protection, to which leaders have met and signed treaties to exercise their fundamental right to self determination and sovereignty, as outlined in Article 1 of the United Nations Charter.

The Russian Federation urges other nations to support the citizens of Ukraine, in order to end this conflict. The Russian Federation hopes to create a resolution to allow forces to stabilize the region and to ensure peace and self-government, once and for all. In addition to this stabilization, this body must address the rampant misinformation surrounding this conflict in order to move forward in a productive way, to end the gap in diplomatic relations. The Russian Federation hopes to find support in all partner nations of the Security Council, however it recognizes that due to misinformation, many nations have put up walls that limit diplomatic discussion. The Russian Federation has and will make efforts to educate partner nations on this issue, however it hopes to find immediate support in nations such as China and India.
