The UN Security Council plans to address the context of the war and impunity in the context of the war unleashed by Russia. The UN Security Council will hold a ministerial meeting on Ukraine on Thursday, September 22. It will focus on impunity and justice. This is reported by the UN press service. Permanent Representative of France to the UN and President of the Security Council in September, Nicolas de Rivière, said at a press conference that the Council will hold a meeting at the ministerial level on September 22 “on the crisis in Ukraine, dedicated to impunity and justice, which will be chaired by the French Foreign Minister.” He also noted that the IAEA should be able to fully carry out its mandate in Ukraine. He said Russia has asked for a meeting on the issue and the Council will discuss it in the coming days. The UN added that all ministers of the Council’s member states would be invited and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba would be present. Rivière said that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky may address the Council if the head of state himself wants to do so. In addition, on 7 September, the Council will hold a meeting on forced displacement in Ukraine. We shall remind you that the UN said it supports any IAEA Mission to the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant if it is conducted from Kyiv. Additionally, Kyiv stressed that IAEA specialists can enter the Zaporizhzhia NPP only through government-controlled territory.
