Russia out of UNHRC on Bucha massacre, US resolution passed in UN General Assembly, 58 countries including India distanced themselves from voting
The world has expressed outrage over Russia's attack on Ukraine. The United Nations General Assembly on Thursday suspended Russia from the United Nations. The United Nations General Assembly has been suspended after voting on a resolution to oust Russia from the United Nations Human Rights Council. 93 votes were cast in favor of this proposal and 24 in opposition, while 58 countries including India did not participate in voting. Russia was suspended only after this voting.
Let us tell you that in view of the massacre in Bucha, Ukraine, the US had proposed to suspend Russia from the Human Rights Council. Russia has now become the second country whose membership has been stripped from the Human Rights Council. The UNGA had previously suspended Libya from the Council in 2011.

"We have ensured that a persistent and serious human rights violator will not be allowed to occupy a leadership position on human rights at the United Nations," Ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas said on the resolution.
Russia's ally China on Thursday opposed the resolution, after abstaining from the last two General Assembly votes.

Earlier, welcoming the delegates to the 14th Geneva Summit, United Nations Watch Executive Director Hillel Neuer said, "Today we are meeting at a time when for the second time in history there are calls for the removal of UNHRC member-states. Following the way Russia attacked Ukraine, the US announced that working with Ukraine and other European states, they would pull Russia out of the Human Rights Council.
