On Wednesday, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution calling on Russia to  immediately cease the use of force against Ukraine as Moscow had warned that such a move would further escalate the escalation.

The resolution was adopted by a majority of 141 votes, while 5 countries opposed it and 35 abstained, including China, out of 193 member states.

The resolution, whose adoption was met with applause after more than two days of interventions, demands Moscow  immediately, completely and unconditionally withdraw all its military forces from Ukraine, and  condemns Russia's decision to increase the state of readiness of its nuclear forces. 

Before the vote, the US ambassador to the United Nations, Linda Thomas Greenfield, accused Russia of preparing to increase what she described as brutality in the war on Ukraine.

For his part, Russia's envoy to the United Nations, Vassily Nebenzia, urged not to vote in favor of the resolution condemning Moscow, saying that it would lead to escalation.

This condemnation comes as Russia prepares to hold talks with the Ukrainian side, in Belarus, on Thursday, as part of efforts to contain the situation.

The TASS news agency quoted the head of the Russian delegation to the talks, as saying that the talks would include a ceasefire and security guarantees that Moscow had long demanded.

The delegation confirmed that the Russian army had opened a safe corridor so that Ukrainian negotiators could cross into Belarus.
