Russia Takes Over UN Security Council Presidency
Russia assumes the rotating presidency of the UN Security Council from South Korea on June 1 and will hand it over to Rwanda on July 1.
Russia's UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin told journalists at a press conference at the UN headquarters that the June agenda of the Security Council would include meetings on Afghanistan, on Africa-related issues, including the situation in in Mali, Cote-d'Ivoire and the Sahara-Sahel district, as well as a discussion of the relations between Sudan and Southern Sudan, according to reports of ITAR-TASS.
Churkin made clear that the UN Security Council would pay special attention to topics such as the Middle East settlement, the situation in Yemen and Libya, chemical demilitarization in Syria and the humanitarian situation in that country.
He noted that meetings on Ukraine could be held, despite the fact that there were none on the existing agenda.
Russia's U.N. Ambassador assured that the country would maintain constructive dialogue with other UN Security Council members and search for compromise solutions of any issues during its presidency.

Opposite to Russia, the US did not annex any new territory belonging to its neighbour states after the WWII. Poland wishes to have the US bases on its territory, I would say it wishes them even more then the US themselves. A few simple facts justify it. Polish army is 100% professional, fair trained on missions in Iraq and Afghanistan and partly modern equpped (F-16 Block 52, Leopard 2A5, KTO Rosomak etc.), but it is 8x smaller than the Russian. The same applies for a mlitary budget - Poland's USD 12 billions p.a. against Russia's 84 billions. The WWII started with Nazi attack on Poland, and 6 millions Polish citizens lost their lives in it. Poland will do whatever possible to prevent any new war to happen but it also never gives up any single part of it's territory. Hitler demanded the "Gdansk corridor" in 1939 and was refused. On 3rd of September the UK and France declared war on him believing that it would stop him. On 17.09 the USSR supported Nazis as agreed in secret protocol to the Ribbentrop/Molotov pact and invaded eastern Poland, only to be betrayed by his Nazi ally two years later, in 1941. Changing borders in Europe means playing with peace, it should not be done.
"Russia is perceived as dangerous in terms of world security"-----is "Russia" the name of the State-owner of ~800 military bases all over the world (including, btw, bases in Poland)?....;-)....Well, the service dress "Sanity" is worn to formal events such as the Parade of Russophobic Stupidity.........
