In 2005, the R2P was adopted unanimously at the UN World Summit. After the discussions and resolutions, the R2P has been invoked and implemented in several crises. Despite human rights violations and war crimes in Myanmar, the UN Security Council has failed to respond to these crimes and to implement R2P in this case. The passive approach of the UNSC led to atrocity crimes. In 2017, the Myanmar military launched a “clearance operation,” thousands of people had to leave the country. Since then, the UNSC has neither adopted a resolution, nor applied sanctions or reminded the R2P to Myanmar government. This article explores the Myanmar crisis and analyzes the UN Security Council's muted response to the Rohingyas crisis. In conclusion, we argue that the veto power of China and Russia restrains the effectiveness of the UNSC in Myanmar case.
