Russia decries West’s bid for neo-colonialist legal orderOctober 1, 2023
The Russian Federation Council in a statement issued on September 25 strongly denounced as an intolerable attempt the West’s bid to replace the international legal system with a neo-colonialist one.
It stressed that the Western bloc’s bid to substitute some kind of neo-colonialist “order based on rules” for the international legal system based on articles of the UN Charter deserves rejection by the world community.
Such an attempt enables the Western nations to continuously exploit developing countries, it said, and called for strictly observing the widely accepted international legal principles and regulations and consolidating the global security structure based on the right role of the UN.
It noted that this standpoint is winning the sympathy of members of parliaments of the BRICS member nations and developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
