UNSC: Historical United Nations Security Council

Welcome to the UNSC Committee at SCMUN 2018!


The United Nations Security Council is the United Nations’ foremost body when it comes to matters of global threats to international peace and security. The UNSC leads the UN in addressing and finding resolutions to acts of aggression. The council is comprised of five permanent veto powers and 10 rotating member countries.

 

Topic: 2014 Annexation of Crimea

In 2014, Ukrainian Euromaidan protests over President Viktor Yanukovych’s decision to reject an association agreement with the European Union continued to grow and escalate. After Yanukovych fled the country in February, an interim government formed, though Russia refused to recognize this new government. Claiming it to be a coup d’etat, Russia began making military incursions into the country, including the Ukrainian territory of Crimea. Ukraine saw this as a violation of international law; Russia disagrees. Delegates of the UNSC must respond to this perceived aggression and determine the best course of action on the international stage.
