GB News: Ann Widdecombe slams ‘toothless' UN after Zelensky calls for dissolution

President Zelensky addressed the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday about the horrors in Bucha and other regions of Ukraine where war crimes have been committed. In the powerful video address, he questioned the usefulness and value of the UN.

He said: “Please show how we can reform or change and work for peace.
“Or if there is no alternative and no option, then the next option would be to dissolve yourself altogether.”

Mr Zelensky addressed the genocide in Bucha by Russian troops where the bodies of Ukrainian civilians littered the streets, some grossly tortured and others with their legs or hands bound with bullet wounds to the chest or head.

GB News host Dan Wootton asked Ms Widdecombe her thoughts on the claim that the UN is “toothless”.

The former MEP replied: “I think it’s a paper tiger quite honestly, talks a great deal, it’s a wonderful talk shop but when it actually comes to effective action, it can be remarkably toothless.

“I’m not saying it’s utterly useless, you have such things as UN sanctions, you can occasionally get something out of them, but it doesn’t stop wars.”

Ms Widdecombe later added: “It doesn’t actually stop anything when it’s up against a leader who is determined, which Putin is.”

The Ukrainian President is becoming increasingly frustrated with allies and organisations who do more talking than action as he has repeatedly called for more support and weaponry.

Ms Widdecombe stated her disbelief that the Ukrainian President truly wants to see the UN dissolved.

During the speech on Tuesday, Zelensky also implored the organisation to remove the Russian Federation from the Security Council where it can vote and block decisions over its own acts of aggression.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres said: “I regret the divisions that have prevented the Security Council from acting on Ukraine and other threats to peace.

“Today I urged its member countries to do everything in their power to end the war and mitigate its impact on the people of Ukraine and beyond.”
