Analysis

  • While the resolution contains some criticisms directed to "the parties," the brunt of it is aimed at Russia. The resolution expressly demands that Russia withdraw from Ukraine and calls for cessation of attacks on Ukrainian infrastructure.
  • Furthermore, the resolution is sponsored by Ukraine and is the product of the UNGA's Emergency Special Session on Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Russia voted against the resolution.
