In addition to the Russian military withdrawal, the adopted text demands that Russia immediately cease the use of force against Ukraine and unconditionally reverse the decision to recognize the independence of Donetsk and Luhansk.

The General Assembly also called on the parties to comply with the Minsk agreements and urges peaceful resolution of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine “through political dialogue, negotiations, mediation and other peaceful means.”

“The General Assembly has spoken. (…) The message is loud and clear: End hostilities in Ukraine, now. Silence the guns, now. Open the door to dialogue and diplomacy, now,” stated António Guterres.

In another vein, the UN head emphasized the rapid mobilization of funds for humanitarian operations in Ukraine and its neighboring countries and stressed the enormous international generosity seen yesterday in the response to the appeal to raise resources to provide life-saving assistance to the affected population.

Names of U.S. soldiers

Vladimir Putin repeatedly insisted that only professional soldiers and officers were involved in Russia’s “special military operation” in Ukraine and that no conscripts would be used. However, the Russian Defense Ministry acknowledged on March 9 that it used soldiers recruited in Ukraine (in English) and that some were captured by Ukrainian forces.

“What kind of trust can there be if Putin says one day that no conscripts will be sent there … and then the Defense Ministry acknowledges that they were there?” commented Alexei Tabalov, a lawyer advising the conscripts, to the Associated Press.

“The families are in utter ignorance,” he told The Guardian newspaper. “I know the situation is really bad when the families tell me they can no longer contact the soldiers.”

A student (in English) from Donbas was sent by the Russian military to Mariupol without training and with rifles older than those given to professional soldiers. His unit experienced heavy fighting. Members of the unit drank water with dead frogs.

The news coincides with the declarations of the former Ukrainian Defense Minister who warned that Russia has enough troops to take over Kiev.

In mid-week U.S. President Joe Biden ordered the dispatch of some 3,000 additional troops to Poland and Romania as part of Washington’s efforts to reassure North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) allies amid tension between Russia and the West over Ukraine.

“Ambassador Sullivan’s departure is planned and is part of a normal diplomatic rotation,” the State Department said. “He has served a full term as U.S. ambassador to Russia, managing one of the world’s most critical bilateral relationships during unprecedented times.”

The department added that “the United States will continue to unequivocally condemn the Kremlin’s aggressive war against Ukraine and remain steadfast in our commitment to support Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.”
