at the UN, the united front against the Russian invasion begins to crumble

Published on :

Russia, accused of gross and systematic violations of human rights in Ukraine, will no longer serve on the Human Rights Council – an institution whose mission is to protect these rights. In a vote in Thursday’s General Assembly, the UN suspended Moscow from its seat on this Council. The text received a two-thirds majority with 93 votes in favour. However, 24 countries voted against this resolution proposed by the United States and 58 abstained.

the pictures of mass graves and corpses of Boutcha obviously not enhanced support for Ukraine. In fact, the united front that members of the UN have shown so far seems to be crumbling.

On March 2, a resolution demanding the immediate cessation of hostilities was again overwhelmingly approved by 141 countries. Only five countries, including Russia and Syria, voted against. A result that was applauded by many diplomats.

None of that this time. For example, there is no question of China distancing itself from Russia, its loyal ally. Beijing, which again abstained on March 2, even voted against this text proposed by the United States, as did Iran. India, who had said to herself deeply troubled the killings of civilians in Boutcha again abstained, as did South Africa, Senegal and even Mexico.

Before the vote, Russia had further increased the pressure and called on all countries to oppose it.” American attempt to defend its dominant position Moscow also regretted this decision, but confirmed that Russia will continue to defend its interests with all legal means at its disposal.

Moscow denounces the American position

Following the suspension decided by the UN General Assembly, Gennady Kuzmin, Russia’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations, ruled that it was a measure” illegal and politicized which would not prevent Russia from fulfilling its obligations to protect human rights. He also denounced the triumph of an American and colonialist approach to human rights.

Once Russia’s suspension was confirmed, Moscow decided to withdraw from the Human Rights Council with immediate effect. According to the spokesman for Russian diplomacy, this suspension undermines the universality of the organization. Maria Zakharova further believes she is part of an anti-Russian campaign that will allow Western countries to establish their control over human rights.

In fact, this suspension is likely to have little impact on Russia, our correspondent in Moscow analyzes, Jean Didier Revoin† As a permanent member of the Security Council, it retains the means to relay its messages within the UN, and according to Senator Konstantin Dolgov, this suspension will in no way affect Russian principles regarding Ukraine.
