United Nations Resolution on Russia-Ukraine War

24 February 2023 04:02

The United Nations general assembly met Wednesday for an emergency special session marking one year since Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine. A resolution put forth will be voted on later this week.

The resolution drafted by ukraine in consultation with allies and discussed with interested countries underscores the urgency to find “a comprehensive just and lasting peace in line with the principles of the charter of the United Nations” and calls on united nations members and international organizations to support that effort.

Belarus introduced two amendments to the resolution that should be up for vote as well.

US Ambassador Linda Thomas-greenfield said that the “vote will go down in history”.

On the other hand Russia's UN representative said that the resolution will not help with the conflict and claimed that it will further raise russophobian sentiments.
