The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) is scheduled to have a vote on April 7 to order to remove Russia from the UNHRC.
Following claims of Russian forces killing several people in the Ukrainian town of Bucha, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) is scheduled to have a vote on April 7 regarding Russia’s removal from the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC). This comes as a move to send a message to Moscow that they need to stop their aggression. In his address to UNSC, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy criticised the United Nations for not taking severe actions against Russia.
Earlier, the US and the UK also asked the UN Human Rights Council to exclude Russia. US Ambassador to the United Nations, Linda Thomas-Greenfield said on April 4 in Bucharest, Romania that Russia’s membership in the Human Rights Council is a farce and it is wrong. She further stated that they believe that it is past time for the UN General Assembly to vote to remove them, according to Radio Free Europe. She visited Romania to see the country’s border with Ukraine and examine how it is dealing with a tremendous flood of migrants.
