Russia scraps UN vote on Ukraine resolution over lack of support

Russian President Vladimir Putin

Russia has canceled a UN Security Council vote on a “humanitarian” resolution on Ukraine, scheduled for Friday, due to a lack of support from its closest allies, diplomats say.

Moscow has failed to secure co-sponsorship of the draft text from China and India, suggesting that Beijing and New Delhi would not have supported it, an ambassador tells AFP.

According to Reuters, a draft version of the resolution calls for aid access and civilian protection in Ukraine, but does not address accountability or acknowledge Russia’s invasion of its neighbor.
