Almost three-quarters of the UN General Assembly demanded aid access and civilian protection in Ukraine on Thursday.
It is the second time the 193-member General Assembly has adopted a resolution against Russia’s military operation in Ukraine.
The resolution adopted on Thursday received 140 votes in favor and five votes against while 38 countries, including China, abstained.
General Assembly resolutions are nonbinding, but they carry political weight.
The resolution demands the protection of civilians, medical personnel, aid workers, journalists, hospitals and other civilian infrastructure. It also demands an end to the siege of cities, in particular Mariupol.
