The UNGA held Russia responsible for the war in Ukraine in the resolution.
A total of 94 countries voted in favor of the resolution.
73 countries including India did not participate in the vote.
New York. The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) adopted a resolution on Monday to keep the pressure on Russia. The UNGA held Russia responsible for the war in Ukraine in the resolution. In this proposal, the question of compensation for the losses caused to Ukraine by the Russian attack was raised. A vote was taken at the UNGA on this. A total of 94 countries voted in favor of the resolution. At the same time, 14 countries voted against the proposal. Along with this, 73 countries including India did not participate in the vote.
According to ANI, Ruchira Kamboj, India’s representative to the United Nations, said we need to objectively consider whether a reassessment process through a vote at the UNGA will help efforts to resolve the conflict. Moreover, the legal validity of such a process by the UNGA resolution remains uncertain.
Kamboj further stated that we should not create a system without adequate international legal control and should not set a precedent. We must avoid measures that prevent or undermine the possibility of dialogue and settlement to end the conflict.
The Czech Republic, which supported the resolution, said Russia should be held responsible for violations and damages caused by the war in Ukraine. It may be known that on February 24 of this year, Russia attacked Ukraine, which is still going on. Thousands of soldiers from both countries have died in this war so far. Especially Ukraine suffered a lot in this war.

On the other hand, India has maintained its independent position on the Russian-Ukrainian issue from the beginning. India has repeatedly said that it is not in favor of war and that the present moment is not at all conducive to war. But India has never openly condemned Russia. We know that relations between India and Russia are very good and on the international scene, India is making progress in its foreign policy.
