-- this post authored by Isabel von Kessel

Founded after World War II, the UN Security Council issued its first resolution on January 25, 1946.

Many have followed suit ever since, of which 220 have been vetoed by at least one of the Permanent Members. With 90 vetoes in total, the USSR has blocked the most resolutions and solely accounts for all vetoes up until December 1955, mostly on UN membership applications and admissions of non-permanent countries.

During the Cold War-era though, the US has also shown itself to be a similarly notorious veto power, rejecting 79 resolutions that mainly broached various situations in the Middle East. As our graphic further demonstrates, China has proven the least disagreeable - only 11 vetoes can be attributed to China’s activity in the Security Council.
