The UN General Assembly calls on Russia to "stop its occupation" in Ukraine by a majority of votes
The United Nations (UN) General Assembly adopted a resolution condemning Russia's invasion of Ukraine and calling on Russia to withdraw its troops from the region by 141 votes to 7 to end the war.
A year after Russia's attempt to invade Ukraine, the United Nations (UN) General Assembly passed a resolution with 7 votes to 141 condemning Russia's invasion of Ukraine and calling on Russia to end the war by withdrawing its troops from the region.
Russia, Belarus, North Korea, Syria, Mali, Eritrea and Nicaragua voted against the resolution, while 32 countries including China, India, South Africa, Pakistan and Sri Lanka abstained.
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitro Kuleba stated that they welcomed the non-binding decision and said that the adoption of the resolution by a majority of votes is proof that it is not only the West that supports his country.
Pointing out that the decision clearly demonstrates the need for Russia to end its illegal aggression and to restore Ukraine's territorial integrity, Kuleba said, "A year after Russia launched its all-out invasion attempt, global support for Ukraine continues."
