Watch live: United Nations General Assembly votes on Ukraine resolution | 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. Today is the final day of debate on the item. A vote on the draft resolution is expected after 1800 GMT.

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.

  1. All creatures of Earth are given by God or some say evolution. They all live and die by natural cycles. Except for humans. They live by money and greed. And geographical possession. Humans are the most destructive creatures on Earth. The human creatures are only a small number. And need to be removed from the Earth at the earliest opportunity !! Putin would be a great start !

  4. Putin is a bully, only one way to deal with a bully is to come back to him… we will attack. If him attacks we will too. We have just as much strength that his has. Send the US M-1 Tanks. That would stop this whole thing.

  7. why russia at war with ukraine

    dont just jump to conculusion everything the west media say
    see how the the real.truce faces of the west really are hegemony interference your country affairs telling your goverment what to do and threat make the country in chaos is this what u want in your own country think

  8. He keeps talking about the “genocide” of the Donbas people. During the last 5 years there were 50 civilian casualties ( on both sides of the frontline ) 40 of which were a result of land mines, not shelling. And there wouldn’t have been even those if not for the fact that Russia moved their troops into the Donbas right after they annexed crimea in 2014.
    Now, just in the city of Mariupol it is estimated by the mayor that number of civilian casualties exceeds 20,000 which is 10% of the population.
    Do you really think UN ambassador Nebenzia believe s what he's saying?
