Fiona Hill: ‘Elon Musk Is Transmitting a Message for Putin’​

Eight months into Russia’s war against Ukraine, POLITICO talks to the Russia analyst about whether Putin’s aims are evolving and what it would take to end the war.​

I thought this interview was a good read and then really piqued my interest toward the end with Hill's thoughts on the UN and their current role. I think this really highlights how the chess pieces seem to be falling into places in regard to future prophetic events with OWG and the AC.

Reynolds: So we need a new or a revamped global order to address the whole problem?

Hill: That’s obvious. So how do we do it? A lot of people don’t find the idea of a revamped United Nations very popular. I can just imagine some of my former colleagues groaning loudly. We definitely need a slimmed-down version.

But we do need international institutions to deal with the magnitude of the problems that we’re facing. It’s ironic that Elon Musk, the man who has been talking about getting us to Mars should be Putin’s messenger for the war in Ukraine, when we’re having a really hard time getting our act together on this planet. But it’s glaringly obvious to ordinary people that we need to do so. Time is not on our side.

============
In an part of an answer in a previous question Hill commented regarding the UN's role:

The United Nations has been a major player in this conflict. The secretary-general has been heavily involved investigating war crimes and pressing resolutions. But the United Nations has shown itself inadequate because of the configuration of the Security Council and the veto. Everybody’s talking about how to address this.
