The UN General Assembly has adopted a resolution on Aggression against Ukraine

The UN General Assembly has adopted a resolution calling for "aggression against Ukraine" condemning Russia's actions in Ukraine, urging Russia to immediately withdraw its troops from Ukrainian territory. The resolution has been supported by 141 states, 5 against and 35 abstentions so far.

The resolution was adopted by 141 states, with 35 abstentions and five abstentions: Russia, Belarus, Syria, North Korea and Eritrea. Uzbekistan did not take part in the voting.

The 96-nation resolution "Aggression against Ukraine" requires the Russian Federation to:

Immediate, complete and unconditional withdrawal of all armed forces from the territory of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders;

Stop the use of force against Ukraine immediately and refrain from any illegal threat or use of force against any UN member state;

Immediate and unconditional annulment of the decision of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine on the status of certain regions.

The United Nations General Assembly "strongly condemns" the "aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine in violation of Article 2 of the UN Charter," the resolution noted. Its co-authors urged Russia to adhere to the principles of the UN Charter and called on Minsk to fulfill its international obligations and expressed regret over "Belarus's involvement in the use of illegal force against Ukraine."

The document calls on all parties to abide by the Minsk agreements, to tackle disputes peacefully, and to respect international humanitarian law, which forces them to protect civilians and create the conditions for assistance.
The special session is being held on the basis of last Sunday's vote in the UN Security Council and the 1950 "Unity for Peace" resolution. The move would bypass the veto power of any of the Security Council's permanent members, as Russia had previously blocked a Security Council resolution condemning its actions in Ukraine.

The 11th Extraordinary Session of the UN General Assembly lasted three days, during which more than 100 delegations addressed the international community from its rostrum.
