About Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to the United Nations

The Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to the United Nations in New York is a diplomatic mission of the Russian Federation to the United Nations with headquarters in New York.

The Permanent Mission of the USSR to the United Nations in New York was established after the foundation of the UN under the UN Charter signed on 26 June 1945 at the conference in San-Francisco, which came into force on 24 October 1945. The location and deployment of the Permanent Mission was related to solving and agreeing upon the more general question of the UN Headquarters location. The decision to choose the USA as a host country for the United Nations was taken by the Preparatory Commission as early as on 15 December 1945, however, the question was still discussed during 1946, and the Headquarters Agreement between the United Nations and the United States of America was only signed on 26 June 1947 to come into force on 21 November 1947.

General provisions on the immunities for representatives of the Organization’s Member States in UN main and subsidiary bodies were laid down in the Convention on Privileges and Immunities of the United Nations adopted by the UN General Assembly on 13 February 1946.

In April 1945 the staff for the Permanent Mission was approved by the Decree of the USSR Council of Ministers. The Mission, among its tasks, was to actively participate in activities of principal and specialized organizations of the UN system.

The status of the Permanent Mission of the USSR to the United Nations was also defined under a resolution of the UN General Assembly of 3 December 1948 on permanent representations to the United Nations, which defined the procedure for appointing permanent representatives and the issue of their powers.

Since 1991, after the disintegration of the USSR, Russian Federation, along with other former republics of the Soviet Union is represented at the UN as an independent state and operates under the "Provisions on the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to international organizations", approved on 29 September 1999 by a Presidential Decree.

In December 1991, the Russian Federation, as the continuator state of the Soviet Union in the international arena, has officially taken its place as a permanent member of the UN Security Council.
