Year of Ukraine Failure By UN and Guterres Covered Up Now Refugees UNserved

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Eastern Front

UN GATE, Feb 21 – There is much to say about the now-full year of war in Ukraine. But the focus here is on the total failure of the United Nations, and even more of its Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

  Guterres, who has a pattern of being obsequious to strongmen like China's Xi, with whom he glad-handed at the Beijing Olympics without saying a world about the genocide against the Uighurs in Xinjiang, initially told his staff not to call what happened in Ukraine an invasion. 

 Once he was outed, he pushed forward to try to help sell Russian ammonia, through a Houston-based commodities firm, no less. Thus to keep the UN Security Council's Permanent Five members content. The war continues.  

 When questioned about his actions - Inner City Press asked about Guterres' cover up of his links to convicted UN briber China Energy Fund Committee, and how he chose the Houston-based firm - his response, through "Department of Global Communications" chief Melissa Fleming, as been to keep Inner City Press banned from entry. His spokesperson Stephane Dujarric refuses all of Inner City Press' written questions.

   Now UN General Assembly president Csaba Korosi, who followed suit and blocked Inner City Press from his "Civil Society Town Hall," will hold an entirely symbolic UNGA meeting Feb 22 and 23, and perhaps 24. His spokesperson Paulina Kubiak told Inner City Press it could appeal the ban - but UN DSS chief Gilles Michaud has entirely ignored the December 5, 2022 appeal.  

   How long will those with unrealistic and/or self-serving dreams about the UN allow Guterres to continue this?  

   On February 20, Presidents' Day in the US, Joe Biden showed up in Kyev. On November 21, NRC said One year on from the start of the Ukraine war, NRC has found that seven out of ten refugees who fled to Poland, Moldova and Romania said they are struggling to make ends meet.  As President Biden prepares to speak in Warsaw later today [Feb 21] NRC is calling on host countries and international donors to not forget about the plight of refugees.. [But Tony's UN has moved on, while still conniving to help sell Russian ammonia through Trammo or otherwise]. More respondents in Poland and Moldova report having moved to substandard housing to reduce their costs compared to those in Romania, and relatively more people in Moldova – particularly the Roma community – have resorted to borrowing money since they fled Ukraine. Usurious nations.. More responses follow. Watch this site.
