U.N. General Assembly to Vote on Russia’s Annexation of Ukrainian Territories

HeadlineOct 11, 2022

Russia’s latest strikes came as the U.N. General Assembly gathered for an emergency session on Monday, ahead of a vote later this week on whether to accept Russia’s annexation of four partially occupied territories of Ukraine. Poland’s U.N. ambassador was among those urging member states to condemn Russia’s move.

Krzysztof Szczerski: “Not condemning the attempted annexation means weakening the U.N. Charter and weakening the whole U.N. system. One cannot expect U.N. institutions to function efficiently if one votes not accordingly to the very foundation they were established upon.”

Today Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is holding virtual talks with leaders of the G7, including U.S. President Joe Biden and U.K. Prime Minister Liz Truss. It’s expected that Zelensky will ask for even more heavy weaponry, including advanced air defense systems.
