Votes at the UN

When the USSR existed it had two extra votes at the UN. That is, the Ukraine and Belarus (Belorussia as then was) had their own seats at the UN, which meant that the Soviets had two votes more than a conventional diplomatic map of the world would suggest they deserved.

Surely with the votes of Israel and the UK on its side, the US now has the same privilege at the UN?
