Georgia is among the 141 countries which backed the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) resolution calling for an immediate end to the war in Ukraine and the pullout of troops from the Ukrainian territory.
The UNGA adopted the resolution at the 11th emergency special session on Thursday hours before the conflict enters its second year. The results were 141 Member States in favour and seven against – Belarus, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Eritrea, Mali, Nicaragua, Russia and Syria. Among the 32 abstentions were China, India and Pakistan.
The Assembly reiterated its demand that Russia “immediately, completely and unconditionally withdraw all of its military forces from the territory of Ukraine and called for a cessation of hostilities” in line with the UN Charter.
The resolution reaffirmed the Assembly’s commitment to the sovereignty, independence, unity, and territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders.
The Assembly also emphasized the need to ensure accountability for the most serious crimes under international law committed in Ukraine through independent national or international investigations and prosecutions to ensure justice for all victims and the prevention of future crimes.
