When it came to Korea, North Korea attacked. The USSR was not at the security council at the time that the UN decided to defend South Korea, which is why the UN intervened.
The reason that the USSR was not there was because it was angry that Taiwan was representing the Chinese people, and not China itself.

That would never have happened had Krustchev (maybe it was their UN ambassador) not thrown a tantrum and walked out right before the vote.
