As UN Guterres Fails on Ukraine Now Brags He'll Be Received By Putin Then Zelenskyy

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC-Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN NY Mag

UN GATE / SDNY, April 22 – As the United Nations under Antonio Guterres fails on Ukriane, now belatedly some former UN officials have written to Guterres, (too) gently chiding him for presiding over the UN's morphing into the a League of Nations, useless and now defunct. 

 On April 15 they wrote: "As former staff members of the UN system, we, the undersigned... mplore you to intensify your personal efforts, deploying all capabilities at your disposal and acting upon lessons learnt from previous conflicts, for the cessation of hostilities." 

  Inner City Press, banned from the UN by Guterres, has reviewed the signatories, see one below and Dimitry Dovgopoly we've asked about. UN associate Spokesperson Eri Kaneko, refusing to answer, on April 22 announced: "The Secretary-General will visit Moscow, in the Russian Federation, on April [26th].    He will have a working meeting and lunch with Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. The Secretary-General will be received by President Vladimir Putin."

Kaneko actually said April 25, but they later fixed it. But the Russian government says only that Guterres will meet Lavrov. As Inner City Press noted, maybe only if Guterres is obsequious with Lavrov as usual will he get face time with Putin, his papacito.

Hours later, the UN put this out, trying to mirror the "received by" language but not explaining why Russia doensn't mention Putin - nor that he is being used to normalize the slaughter. Guterres is the worst SG ever - and that's saying something. Watch this site.

 As to the letter that belatedly raised Guterres from his corrupt slumber, into corrupt "action," here's a signer: Flavia Pansieri, implicated in the UN's cover up of the rape of children in the Central African Republic by (French) UN Peacekeepers. Inner City Press asked about this - before Guterres had it roughed and banned. And what of the signatories done about that? We'll have more on this.

  Guterres couldn't or wouldn't resolve or reduce even a smaller conflict like Cameroon's Paul Biya killing the Anglophones. But who are these former UN officials? We'll have more on this. 

They wrote, "we are horrified at the alternative, the UN becoming increasingly irrelevant and, eventually, succumbing to the fate of its predecessor, the League of Nations."  

 Today's UN is worse that the League of Nations, which never had personnel raping children in Africa and Haiti and then flying home with impunity, while the head man and his censor (here, Melissa Fleming) ban the Press that asks what is being done for the Organization's victims. Banned Inner City Press will have more on this, as well.
