António Guterres: Ukraine War United NATO, but Further Divided the World | GZERO World

Russia invaded Ukraine with impunity — and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres fears it may not be the last middle-sized power to pick a fight without consequence in the near future because global security governance is largely bankrupt.

"The capacity of deterrence that would exist if the whole powers, with the security council, will be able to say, 'This can't be done,' is not there," he tells Ian Bremmer on GZERO World.


Guterres worries that the war in Ukraine has shifted the trend in the balance of global power toward a divided world between the US and its allies vs. China and its friends.

Why? Because Moscow and Beijing don't have the same approach to fixing global problems.

Division is rising, he adds, no matter how much more united NATO is today than it was a year ago.
