It assisted to creation of the Organization of United Nations and installation in it’s Charter the international order based on the corresponding balance of world war. No doubt, important role in this process belonged to nuclear arms which were a decisive factor of prevention of the war. So, the international community which is also the legal reality plays a determinative role in keeping peace and security and decision of many global problems which may be decided only by common efforts of peoples and states as its participants.
In the conditions of violated balance of world forces that became the result of the breakup of the USSR the common interests of states and peoples connected with proper activities of the international community often and often are given to the interests of separate states and their groups.
