The UN General Assembly didn’t adopt the Russia-pushed resolution on Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty. Permanent Representative of Ukraine in the UN Volodymyr Yelchenko claimed on Twitter. 

‘Yet another Russian shame in the UN General Assembly: this time, the draft resolution on “preservation of INF Treaty” failed to obtain even the simple majority of votes,’ he claimed.

Earlier, on December 17, the UN General Assembly endorsed the resolution ‘The problem of the militarization of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol city (Ukraine), as well as parts of the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov’. 66 countries voted in favor, 19 were against, 72 abstained. 

The resolution urges Russia to withdraw its forces from Crimea and terminate the illegal occupation of Ukrainian territory. It also condemns the military build-up of Russia in the Sea of Azov and the Black Sea.
