> A country that can singlehandedly start AND END World War III deserves attention whether you like it or not.
I somehow can't see a situation in which just few ICBMs are in the air that doesn't end in an all-out WW III. So either everybody that has nukes gets the veto, or the people that don't use veto exclusively to stop investigations into their own war crimes get the veto.
Also, while the Oligarchs exploit Russians, they do it to fund their extravagant lifestyles in the West, not in Russia. Doing that in a nuclear wasteland is rather hard.
