It'll be just like Georgia. They Security Council will move a resolution and the bad actor will veto, and everyone will go home and say, "We tried." and feel good about themselves. It ultimately absolves everyone of responsibility for anything.
If you haven't figured out the UN is largely a toothless body of complainers that only gets anything done of one of the large nations decides it wants to do something about it, then you're behind. It's really just a large, scam bureaucracy that keeps pretending it's going to take over the world and until one of the really big nations actually does take over the world and puts the UN nominally in charge as a figurehead to a make everyone else feel better about it, it will never have much real power.

I'm guessing here but... If it came to war between NATO and Russia (as an example) then the UN would go the way of it's predecessor - the League of Nations.
