UN General Assembly Condemns Russia’s ‘Illegal Annexation’ Of Four Ukrainian Regions

On Oct 12th, the UN held an emergency special session and adopted a resolution, condemning Moscow’s so-called referendums in the Donetsk, Kherson, Luhansk and Zaporizhzhia regions of Eastern Ukraine between Sep 23rd to Sep 27th. The resolution condemned Moscow’s attempt to annex Ukrainian territories was illegal under international law and demanded that Moscow “”immediately, completely and unconditionally withdraw all of its military forces from the territory of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders.””

 The resolution was reportedly drafted by member states of the EU and more than 70 countries including Japan were listed as cosponsors. 143 nations including the US, the UK and France voted in favor and 5 votes against the proposal came from Russia, Syria, Nicaragua, North Korea and Belarus, while Communist China and 34 other states abstained.

 Moreover, the meeting also condemned the large-scale missile strikes by the Kremlin against targets across Ukraine on Oct 10th and 11th. This is another unequivocal statement of the international community on Putin’s aggressive war following two resolutions condemning the Kremlin this March.
