India abstains from UN general assembly vote on Ukraine

Even as New Delhi welcomed Moscow and Kyiv’s decision to hold talks at the Belarus border, India abstained from a procedural vote in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to call for a rare special emergency session of the UN General Assembly on Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.

The news: With 11 votes in favour, the resolution was passed, allowing the General Assembly to meet on the crisis as early as Monday night (India time) or Tuesday morning. 

  • India, along with China, and the United Arab Emirates abstained from the voting, while Russia voted no.
  • The 15-nation Security Council met early Monday to vote on the 193-member General Assembly’s emergency special session on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
  • This is the11th emergency session of the UN General Assembly since 1950.
  • This comes just two days after Russia used its veto to block a UN Security Council resolution condemning its “aggression” against Ukraine.
  • Because the vote convening the UNGA session was procedural, none of the Security Council’s five permanent members — China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States — could use their vetoes.
  • On February 25 as well India, China, and the United Arab Emirates had abstained from voting on the resolution, while 11 members of the Security Council voted in favour.
