United Nations General Assembly resolution condemning the attempted annexation of Ukrainian territory by Russia


Today’s remarkable vote in the UN General Assembly is a powerful reminder that the overwhelming majority of nations stand with Ukraine, in defense of the UN Charter and in resolute opposition to the Russia’s ongoing war against Ukraine and its people.

Territorial integrity is a central pillar of the United Nations, and Russia’s violent disregard for Ukraine’s national borders and sovereignty cannot and will not be accepted. By passing this resolution, the nations gathered have made it clear that they will not tolerate any attempt by any UN member state to seize land by force. The vote delivers a resounding rebuke to Russia for its aggression against Ukraine.

The United States is proud to have voted in favor of this resolution. As we have said many times, we will uphold the principles of the UN charter and never recognize the legitimacy of sham referendums or Russia’s attempts to annex parts of Ukraine.

With very few nations voting with Russia today, it is clear that international unity on this issue is resolute and support for Ukraine at the UN and beyond is unwavering. The United States will continue to work with partners around the world to help the people of Ukraine defend their entire nation against Russian aggression.
