On Wednesday, June 7, Yosyp Husak from Kyiv affixed placards that converted the UN logo to read "Useless" on cars belonging to the United Nations and its World Health Organization (WHO). He shared the fruits of his work on Twitter:

Husak explained that he did not consider this to be an act of vandalism, but rather an expression of his views on the lack of effectiveness of the UN as an organization. He later announced a fundraising campaign for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, planning to sell the remaining letters from the inscription in his possession. 

"I have several letters 'U' from 'Useless' here. Let's demonstrate that 'U' is more useful than the UN. I'm putting one of the letters up for auction. The highest bidder will receive it along with a printed photo," Husak commented.

The auction will conclude on Thursday, June 8 at 20:00.

At 7.02 on Tuesday morning, the UN had posted a tweet on its official Twitter account announcing that June 6 was Russian Language Day and invited readers to follow the organization's Russian-language page. The organization retweeted a message about the Kakhovska HPP disaster a few hours later.

 

In response, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine emphasized that the Russian command issues orders related to the commission of crimes against humanity in the Russian language.

 

"Russian commanders will have given the order to blow up the Kakhovka Dam in Russian. What a day at the UN to celebrate Russian language! @UnitedNationsRU tweets about cultural diversity, ignoring the biggest catastrophe in Europe in decades caused solely by Russia. Why be silent?" commented Oleg Nikolenko, spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Now is the Time to Intensify the Battle for Democracy

The good news from the US should be the stimulus for energizing joint efforts within the democratic world to stand up to Russia and the dangerous tyranny and chauvinism it represents.

The UN is paralyzed because Russia has nukes and thus Ukraine needs to get nukes. That's the only thing that will keep the peace after this war is over.
