Putin Meets with UN Secretary-General

April 26, Vladimir Putin held a meeting with Secretary-General of the United Nations Antonio Guterres in the Kremlin.
Putin started the meeting by saying that he believes the UN is not simply universal but it is unique in a way and the international community does not have another organization like it.
“We are doing all we can to support the principles on which it rests, and we intend to continue doing this in the future,” stated Putin.
Putin said, “We have always said that there is no other universal organization like the United Nations, and it is necessary to cherish the institutions that were created after WWII for the express purpose of settling disputes.”
“Unfortunately, our colleagues in the West preferred to ignore all this. After we recognized the independence of these states, they asked us to render them military aid because they were subjected to military actions and armed aggression. In accordance with Article 51 of the UN Charter, Chapter VII, we were forced to do this by launching a special military operation.
I would like to inform you that although the military operation is underway, we are still hoping to reach an agreement on the diplomatic track. We are conducting talks. We have not abandoned them.” continued Putin.
