United Nations Condemns Invasion Of Ukraine And Demands Withdrawal

The UN General Assembly has voted in favour of a resolution condemning Russia's invasion and calling for it immediately to pull all of its forces out of Ukraine.

The resolution was supported by 141 of the body's 193 members at a rare emergency General Assembly session called by the UN Security Council.

Ahead of the vote, Ukraine's UN ambassador Sergiy Kyslytsya said Russia had "come to deprive Ukraine of the very right to exist".

Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said Russia wanted to stop a separatist conflict in eastern Ukraine and accused the West of using "open and cynical threats" to get countries to vote for the resolution.

It is the assembly’s first emergency meeting since 1997.
