It makes a lot of sense what Zelensky said, even though commentators dismissed it as fog of war. He said the U.N. should remove Russia and its veto from the Security Council and, if that doesn't work, abolish the council. "The main thing is today, it's time to transform the system, the United Nations," he told the Security Council. He proposed a global conference in Kyiv to discuss reforms to the United Nations. Grand ideas born in San Francisco, 1945, resurrected in Kyiv, 1925. – Fletcher Farrar, editor
