The UN Recognised the Russian Federation as the Military Aggressor

122 pro votes: the countries that supported the resolution, including China, Brazil, Kazakhstan and Hungary

On April 26, the UN member states put the Russian military aggression against Ukraine on the agenda. As a result of consideration of the issue, a resolution was adopted, which initiates cooperation between the United Nations and the Council of Europe. The document also mentions the Russian war and the recognition of the country ruled by Putin – the military aggressor.

122 countries supported the document. China, Hungary, Kazakhstan and Brazil joined the decision on rapprochement between the UN and the Council of Europe. Moreover, for the first time, these countries recognised Russia as a country that is waging war on Ukraine. 5 countries opposed the resumption of peace and security with the assistance of international organisations. Russia, represented by the Ministries of foreign affairs of Lavrov, Belarus, Nicaragua, Syria and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, became the standard. 18 countries abstained from voting. However, this did not prevent the adoption of a resolution and the start of work towards solving the problems in Ukraine.

"5 famous countries who voted against the human rights resolution," wrote the permanent representative of Ukraine to the UN, Serhii Kislitsa.
