One year since the Russia-Ukraine war

One year since the Russia-Ukraine war

Today (24.02.2023) marks one year of the Russia-Ukraine war.

In 2021, Ukrainian President Zelensky aspires to NATO membership. Russian President Vladimir Putin strongly opposed this. Putin has threatened military action if Ukraine continues to seek NATO membership.

The President of Ukraine did not accept those threats. Accordingly, on February 24, 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine. More than 7 million Ukrainians have been displaced by the Russian invasion.

Meanwhile, a resolution was passed yesterday at the UN General Assembly in New York condemning this attack and urging the withdrawal of troops from Ukraine.

141 votes were in favor and 7 countries including Russia voted against.

Foreign media reported that 32 countries, including Sri Lanka, abstained from participating in the voting. These include India, China, Iran, and South Africa.

Belarus, North Korea, Eritrea, Mali, Nicaragua, and Syria voted against the resolution along with Russia.
