Kuidas muutus Vene-Gruusia sõda rahvusvaheliseks – debatid ÜRO-s
Russia - Georgia war officially took place from 7-15 August 2008, where on the one side was Georgia and on the opposite side were Russian Federation, South-Ossetia and Abkhazian separatists. The purpose of this Bachelor thesis is to analyze the United Nations work and to describe how Russia-Georgia war became international. The analyze is based on the question – did the United Nation do as much as it could to resolve the war. Both countries are members of the United Nation Security Council, but only Russia has a veto. To accomplish the purpose the author used all debates and speeches which took place in the United Nation General Assembly and in the United Nation Security Council. Thereby the author analyzed the report by the United Nation Secretary. During the period of 8 August till 9 October there took place six debates about Russia-Georgia war in the United Nation Security Council which ended with the resolution. The United Nation Security Council’s resolutions are mandatory for all members and 9 October 2008 they voted for the resolution. This resolution describes the results of the debates where 15 members gave a vote. None of the countries used their veto. Resolution decides to extend the mandate of the United Nations mission for a new period terminating 15 February 2009 and decides to remain actively seized of the matter. Considered all debates in the United Nation Security Council and the resolution it can be said that the United Nation did everything what was possible to resolve the conflict peacefully. There was also a theoretical option to make some economic sanctions or use military intervention, but probably Russia would have used its veto.
