Watch live: United Nations General Assembly emergency meeting on Ukraine - Day 2 | DW News

The Security Council voted on Sunday to call for a rare emergency special session of the 193-member UN General Assembly on Russia’s military operation in Ukraine, which will be held on Monday.

The measure convening the General Assembly session was adopted by a vote of 11 in favor, with Russia voting against, and China, India and the United Arab Emirates abstaining. Today’s request for urgent by the Assembly comes after Russia vetoed on Friday a US-led draft Security Council resolution that would have ‘deplored in the strongest terms the Russian Federation’s aggression against Ukraine’. Since the text was procedural, none of the five permanent Council members – China France, Russia, United Kingdom and the United States – could use their vetoes. The measure needed only nine votes in favor to pass.

Only 10 such emergency special sessions of the General Assembly have been convened since 1950, following the adoption of resolution 377A(V), widely known as ‘Uniting for Peace.’ That text gives the Assembly the power to take up matters of international peace and security when the Security Council is unable to act because of the lack of unanimity among its five veto-wielding permanent members.

  7. Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Him. There is no other intermediary. May Jesus Bless you, trust Him, give your life – and He will take care of it :pray Convert yourself and believe in the Gospel – Romans 10 8-10 But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim: 9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. : Why this division, in the evil world we are in, we will be treated as objects and put to fight against each other. This is not what human life should be about. What is the point of wars, the constant enrichment of small units that they erode on the people they use in their plan. It is clear where this is going, we are only a pawn in the game and evil wants to use us for its purposes. There isn't much time left. No matter where you come from, who you are: Christ Is Waiting for you now. Wake up while there's still a chance. May God Keep u in His care.
    An interesting thing about a disease that was created in laboratories by man. You don't remember any other flu: avian, swine, hiv virus that was also created by the human hand. The whole system of pharmacy [I recommend checking the meaning of the word pharmakeia] is not about treatment, but about stuffing the wallets of regular customers, leading them to death.

    it's all business, people do not mean night: just look at what is happening in the world. Evil has no friends, does not know what love or loyalty is – it fights against its own. How to overcome evil? A simple way: apply love to him and wait for reactions. Evil doesn't know what it is, the easiest way to deal with the problem. [MT 24] And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 10And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. […]
    Christ is more powerful than the evil that now rules in this world. "

    Remember that I have won the world <3" Jesus Is Coming – rejoice, the Lord Is near.
    Just a moment longer and the Bridegroom will come and take His Bride.

  8. „[…] Ihr seid über uns hergefallen, während wir damit beschäftigt waren, in unserem Herzen zu prüfen, ob wir das Recht auf unserer Seite hätten […] Diese mit Blut bezahlten Skrupel verliehen uns Franzosen heute das Recht zu denken, dass wir mit reinen Händen in diesen Krieg getreten sind, und dass wir mit reinen Händen aus ihm heraus-getreten sind. […] Wir werden, dank dieser Niederlage, siegen, dank diesem langem Weg, der uns unsere Gründe hat erkennen lassen, dank diesem Leiden, dessen Ungerechtigkeit wir gespürt und aus dem wir eine Lehre gezogen haben. Wir haben dabei das Geheimnis eines jeden Sieges erfahren. Wir haben dabei erfahren, dass, dass entgegen unserem bisherigen Glauben, der Geist nichts gegen das Schwert vermag, dass aber der mit dem Schwert vereinigte Geist stets Sieger bleibt über das um seiner selbst Willen gezogene Schwert. Wir haben erst das Schwert angenommen, nachdem wir wussten, dass der Geist mit uns war. […] Es brauchte erst die Folterung des Fleisches, damit wir uns des Geistes ermächtigen konnten. Denn nur das besitzt man wirklich, was man bezahlt hat. Wir haben teuer bezahlt und bezahlen noch immer. Aber wir besitzen unsere Gewissheiten, unsere Gerechtigkeit: Eure Niederlage ist unvermeidlich. […] Ich habe nie an die Macht der Wahrheit an sich geglaubt, aber es ist schon viel, wenn man weiß, dass bei gleichen Kräfteverhältnissen die Wahrheit stärker ist als die Lüge. […] Wir kämpfen quasi für Nuancen, aber Nuancen, die so wichtig sind, wie der Mensch selber. Wir kämpfen für die Nuance, die das Opfer von der Mystik, die Energie von der Gewalt, die Kraft von der Grausamkeit unterscheidet. […] Sie versuchten mich auf die Bahn zu locken, die sie selber eingeschlagen hatten und auf der sich der Geist des Geistes schämt. Aber der Geist rächt sich! […] Was ist Geist? Wir kennen zumindest sein Gegenteil: den Mord. Was ist der Mensch? Es ist zumindest jene Kraft, die schließlich die Tyrannen und Götter hinwegfegt. […]“

    (der französische Literaturnobelpreisträger Albert Camus während des Zweiten Weltkrieges „An einen deutschen Freund“)

  9. 미스테리한 전쟁이다
    ? ! ㅡㅡㅡ ? !
    러시아군 군사 장비 군용 물품 64키로 왜이것을 미국과 전세계 나라들은 제트기로 러시아 64키로 군사장비를 타격 저격을 못하는가 그럼 러시아 군사장비 64키로 는 우크라이나 로 들어오지를 못한다 그럼 전쟁은 끝난다 러시아 64키로 군사장비 이것을 전세계 각 원수들은 왜 그냥 보고만 있는건가 러시아 군사 장비 64키로 전세계 국가원수들은 드론으로 전부다 쓸어버려라 러시아 군용 군사 장비 64키로 드론으로 전부다 부셔라

  10. Colombia está infestada de miseria, corrupción violencia, guerrillas ,droga, parapolitica,narcopolitica, falsos positivos etc… etc… en pocas palabras la vergüenza de Suramérica y la ONU bien gracias tomando cafecito ni se dice nada..

  11. They should have done the Same when the US and its allies attacked Iraq for false allegation, and stopped them from killing half a million or more people.

  12. It's all good to be against war in Ukraine, but why don't take it universally and be against war everywhere ? Where were these bureaucrats when Libya , Afghanistan, Syria , Iraq , Yemen , Yugoslavia were invaded ?

  13. Bolivias Mother Earth Law is being violated. Mother Earth is parent to all of us. Respect her. To contaminate the environment, to impose disrupt and harm nature and wildlife is not any militaries right or politician. Know this. Even if all the planet is gone, regardless Mother Earth is the boss, know it and bow down.

  14. So the world is scared of Putin and his nuclear weapons, does anyone think it stops here ? Is the world fine with mass destruction terrorism ? Is the world fine with mass murder ? If you don't stand up now for peace and freedom ……when will you ? Politicians are allowing countries to be taken by force and not because of a threat, yet because of greed. Do you think for a minute China and North Korea are not itching to now take over countries that can't fight for themselves ? These are other nuclear countries that can just throw a threat and the world cowers in fear.

  15. It seems to me the United Nations is like a private yacht club. What nation is no less important as the next? We all bleed red and held together by the same DNA as the next. I am so ashamed of our race. We hold nothing or no one sacred. Our DNA makes us human and humanity is supposed to be in our DNA as well. What have we become, cowards of a war and fear of a nation that has gone unchecked since its birth. Let not our fear do what the brave people of Ukraine are doing, fighting to keep their nation and braving by themselves a war that they did not ask for or cause. United Nation supposed to be United as in its title states not separated by fear but United in a cause. Which country will be next? Another state not in the United Nations which there are many. Fear will destroy the country of Ukraine and its that fear will be the cause of its downfall. Be brave, come together and stand next to those who are brave not for their life but for the loss of a Nation they call home. So sad!

  16. Bunch of rich people in power, more than capable of ending together this conflict. They debate, wave papers, but they never really engage the situation. They do as little as possible without looking bad to their people. Human life does not matter to them. Peace does not matter to them, they will only get involved as much as they are forced to.
