In the end, only China agreed with Russia – a draft resolution on the humanitarian situation in Ukraine at the UN Security Council thus failed. Western states had previously described the text as “whimsical” and “offensive”.
As expected, Russia failed with its own humanitarian resolution on the Ukraine conflict in the Security Council. Moscow did not receive the necessary nine yes votes from the 15-strong UN body for its proposed resolution. Only China voted in favor of the text along with Russia in the most powerful UN council, the remaining 13 countries did not participate.
Since Russia is the aggressor in the conflict, Western countries in particular have described the country’s introduction of humanitarian resolve as “cynic” or “disgrace”. The document makes no mention of Russia’s role in the conflict.
United Nations General Assembly vote on Ukraine’s proposal
The United Nations General Assembly is to vote on a resolution on the humanitarian situation in Ukraine. Due to the large number of speakers, representatives from all countries could not appear before the largest body of the United Nations in New York. The election is a text clearly directed against Russia, introduced by Ukraine and which Western diplomats hope will be adopted by a large majority.
But there is also a more neutral text proposal from South Africa that does not mention Moscow as an attacker and could cost votes in the first draft.
