“Any annexation of the territory of a state by another state due to the threat or use of force is a violation of the UN Charter and international law,” Guterres said at a special session of the UN Security Council on the Ukraine war on Thursday.

At the same time, Guterres emphasized, alluding to Kremlin chief Vladimir Putin’s barely concealed nuclear threats: “The idea of ​​a nuclear conflict, once unthinkable, has become a topic of discussion.” This is not acceptable.
