The UN General Assembly has adopted a resolution condemning Russia's invasion of Ukraine and calling on Russia to immediately withdraw its troops from the Ukrainian territory.

According to an Ukrinform correspondent in New York, the decision was made with an unprecedented number of votes - 141 countries voted in favor, 5 voted against and 35 abstained. In particular, Russia, Belarus, North Korea, Eritrea and Syria voted against.

The UN General Assembly condemned the decision of the Russian Federation of 24 February 2022 on a "special military operation" in Ukraine, expressed serious concern over reports of attacks on civilian objects such as residential buildings, schools and hospitals, as well as civilian casualties, including women, the elderly, the disabled and children.

"The military action of the Russian Federation on the sovereign territory of Ukraine has a scale that the international community has not seen in Europe for decades," the resolution said, "and urgent action is needed to save this generation from the scourge of war."

As reported, on February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin declared war on Ukraine and launched a large-scale invasion. Russian troops have been shelling and destroying key infrastructure. Missiles hit residential buildings.

Martial law was imposed in Ukraine and general mobilization was announced.

Ukraine officially filed a lawsuit against the Russian Federation with the UN International Court of Justice in The Hague.

联合国大会紧急特别会议通过乌克兰局势决议草案

当地时间3月2日,联合国大会第11次紧急特别会议(ESS,Emergency Special Session)成员进行投票表决,通过了由乌克兰等超过90国共同提交的乌克兰局势决议草案。

此次投票中141票赞成、5票反对,35票弃权。由于赞成票超过有效票三分之二,因此决议草案通过。俄罗斯、叙利亚、白俄罗斯、朝鲜、厄立特里亚投票反对,中国投票弃权。

2月25日,联合国安理会曾就美国及阿尔巴尼亚提交的乌克兰局势决议草案进行投票,由于常任理事国俄罗斯反对,该决议草案遭否决。随后2月27日,安理会投票决定,要求联合国大会召开紧急特别会议。联大决议与先前安理会遭否决草案相比,除要求俄罗斯“立即、彻底、无条件”从乌克兰撤军外,还加入了针对白俄罗斯的相关条文。

在投票表决前,从2月28日开始,第76届联大主席沙希德、联合国秘书长古特雷斯和122个国家和组织代表做了发言。联合国秘书长呼吁立即停火,并保障人道主义援助的进行。俄乌两国曾在大会上针锋相对,互相指责。

由于联合国大会决议除部分涉联合国自身运行项目外,对会员国没有法律约束力,因此该决议执行情况有待观察。
