The United Nations Security Council has slowed down as the day has gone on, with
delegates seemingly uninterested in continuing debate. As the resolution was wrapping up,
there was a sense of loss as a veto by Russia seemingly inevitable. Mostly optional, The
resolution seems to do nothing to solve the issue, only recommending a vote for some Ukrainian
breakaway provinces to be able to leave. Only two moderated and one unmoderated caucus in
the span of one and a half hours, with delegates seemingly uninterested in the content and
information from the committee. There was one standout: The United States of America had a
keen interest in keeping the security of the volatile region, all while working with Russia to
achieve a political compromise.
Delegates seemed to be attempting to recruit nations such as India, not present in
UNSC, to create a peacekeeping force - it is unclear that the UNSC has such a power, to pull
peacekeeping forces into another nation. Later on, delegates questioned the validity of the
UNSC’s power to create sanctions, a power granted to them by the UN charter. After multiple
moderated caucuses almost failing after a single speaker, the delegates seemed exhausted and
uninterested in continuing any discussion.
Speaking almost exclusively in jargon, some delegates had little to no resemblance of
the actual situation in Ukraine - perhaps exacerbated by the nature of an online UNSC meeting
(editor's note: rip the 4th wall). However, delegates seemed determined to finish a resolution by
the end of the day.
