UN General Assembly calls for Russia to pay Ukraine war reparations

World A- A A+

The UN General Assembly on Monday approved a resolution saying Russia must be held accountable for violations of international law related to the war in Ukraine, including by paying war reparations, Axios reports. 

Ninety-four countries voted to approve the measure, while 14 nations, including China and Iran, voted against it. Some 73 countries abstained.

The resolution did not receive the overwhelming level of support some of the previous measures got.

The resolution adds that Russia must be held accountable for any violations of international law and "must bear the legal consequences of all of its internationally wrongful acts, including making reparation for the injury, including any damage, caused by such acts."

It also states there is a need to create "an international mechanism for reparation for damage, loss or injury" stemming from Russia's war in Ukraine and recommends member nations, in cooperation with Ukraine, create an "international register” to document evidence and claims of "damage, loss or injury" to Ukrainian citizens and the state.
