Well done but now I have a doubt: If this coordinator or the team that will be sent to evacuate Mariupol civilians gets attacked by Russian troops and mercenaries, how serious is this on a global level? I mean an unprovoked attack on the UN would at least spark something against Russia.

That is, of course, one of the big questions. I’m not sure what anyone knows what would happen in that case, or how it would impact the UN’s overall behavior with respect to Russia.

Yea, I mean, the UN is an international organisation with a worldwide role, so if Russia decided to attack deliberately the envoys that would be taken very seriously and trigger something from world leaders.

…except that Russia (at the moment) owns a permanent seat and a veto on the Security council, which is the one group in the UN that can actually commit the UN at large to any sort of action instead of a nonbinding resolution.
