Russia-Ukraine War: UN Suspends Russia From Human Rights Council | Ground Report | India First

In the latest development, United Nations General Assembly on Thursday adopted a resolution suspending Russia from the Human Rights Council over its war in Ukraine. The 197-member UN body voted on a resolution brought by the US. The resolution was adopted with 93 votes in favor, 24 against, and 58 abstentions, including India.

India's representative at the UN, Ambassador TS Tirumurti, explained the reasons why India abstained from the vote.

In a statement, he said, "Since the inception of the Ukrainian conflict, India has stood for peace, dialogue and diplomacy. We believe that no solution can be arrived at by shedding blood and at the cost of innocent lives. If India has chosen any side, it is the side of peace and it is for an immediate end to violence. We continue to remain deeply concerned at the worsening situation and reiterate our call for end to all hostilities. When innocent human lives are at stake, diplomacy must prevail as the only viable option."

"India has been at the forefront of protecting human rights, right from the drafting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We firmly believe that all decisions should be taken fully respecting due process, as all our democratic polity and structures enjoin us to do. This applies to international organisations as well, particularly the United Nations," he added.
