Article 6 of Chapter II of the United Nations Charter states that “a Member of the United Nations which has persistently violated the Principles contained in the present Charter may be expelled from the Organization by the General Assembly upon the recommendation of the Security Council.” Although the Russian Federation is a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, the UN high council has 14 other members. Why wouldn’t a majority vote be sufficient for a “recommendation” of expulsion, or does Russia have the legal authority to veto its own expulsion? In the alternative, why don’t the members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization consider imposing a NATO-wide travel ban on all Russian citizens, effective immediately?
