How did we get here
Since Russia launched what they call “special military operations“On April 24, a draft Security Council resolution that would frustrate the invasion of Moscow was never adopted.
However, soon after, the 193-member General Assembly adopted two non-binding resolutions, demonstrating Russia’s “aggression against Ukraine”.
It also condemns Russia for creating a “catastrophic” humanitarian situation and demands its troops “immediately, completely and unconditionally“Withdraw and have access to aid and civilian protection.
