WebPublicaPress (United Nations / New York) -All together 143 UN Member-States voted to condemn Russia’s illegal referenda and attempts to annex parts of Ukraine. Only four countries voted with Russia: Belarus, North Korea, Syria, Nicaragua. It was the highest number of votes against Russia since start of their illegal invasion on Ukraine on February 24 this year..

United Kingdom ambassador Barbara Woodward said: “The United Nations has voted overwhelmingly to condemn Russia’s illegal attempts to annex Ukraine.

“Russia tried to redraw Ukraine’s borders in blood and faked ballots, and destroy everything the UN stands for. Russia has failed on the battlefield and failed at the UN.

“Today, 143 countries stood with Ukraine, and united to defend the UN Charter. Only 4 voted with Russia.

“Russia has isolated itself, but Russia alone can stop the suffering. The time to end the war is now.”

And United States ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield also expressed her satisfaction of the General Assembly vote.

She said it was  a “monumental and historic day,”

“We just saw 143 countries affirm the fundamental principles of the UN Charter. You saw these countries stand up for territorial integrity, they stood up for sovereignty, and you saw these countries stand up for this institutio,” said US ambassador to the UN..

Thomas-Greenfield pointed that on “Russia’s lies” in front of the General Assembly, saying – “all of us heard those lies, and we all stood up against them.” She said thatt the very short list of countries who joined them, (only five were against resolution) “it is not exactly good company.”

On the other side, indeed, the international community soundly rejected the affront to territorial integrity, to national sovereignty, to peace and security – defending thus Ukraine.

” It means that in the eyes of the world and the United Nations, Ukraine’s borders remain the same,” US ambassador stressed.

“Kherson is Ukraine. Zaporizhzhya is Ukraine. Donetsk is Ukraine. Luhansk is Ukraine. And Ukraine remains Ukraine,” Linda Thomas-Greenfield say to the reporters in front go main entrance to UN General Assembly hall.
