According to the news agency AFP, the United Nations General Assembly suspended Russia from the Human Rights Council today in response to killings in Ukraine’s Bucha. Evidence of civilian killings in Bucha and other towns surrounding Kyiv, which Ukraine has blamed on Russian troops but Moscow denies, has shocked the world and prompted calls for new sanctions against Moscow.
Of the 193 members of the assembly, 93 voted in favor of the suspension proposed by the US, while 24 voted against it and 58 abstained, implying a weakening of international unity against Russia at the UN.
It was only the second time a country had been suspended from the council. Libya was the first to do so in 2011.
