-The UN general assembly adopted a resolution late at night on Feb. 23, calling for an end to the war and demanding Russia’s withdrawal from Ukraine, in line with the UN Charter.
Coming just hours before the war entered its second year, the resolution was adopted under the Uniting for Peace mandate, which provides the possibility for the UN General Assembly to take action to address acts of aggression or other serious threats to international peace when the Security Council is blocked by the veto power of one of the Permanent Five Members.
