Ukraine’s latest proposal to condemn Russia has attracted the backing of just 58 out of 193 UN member states, a far cry from the number that symbolically supported Kiev in the General Assembly in March 2022.

Kiev’s envoy to the UN Sergey Kislitsa heralded the proposed resolution on Wednesday, following the Security Council meeting convened on Ukraine’s independence day.

The session featured a video address by President Vladimir Zelensky, for which the council had to override protocol requiring in-person appearances, and a series of statements by Western governments denouncing Russia.

Moscow’s envoy Vassily Nebenzia provided the counterpoint by introducing evidence of Ukrainian atrocities into the record and even naming Kiev’s western backers as accomplices in specific instances.

Kislitsa’s resolution also fell short of the support Kiev had back in March, right after the start of the Russian military operation. At the March 2 General Assembly session,141 member countries – or 73% of the UN – voted for a nonbinding resolution to condemn Moscow.

This week, however, that support stood at 30%, with no African, Persian Gulf or BRICS countries on board – and only two Latin American governments, Colombia and Guatemala, standing with Ukraine.

Soon, the US, G7 and NATO countries will only have themselves to sanction. Let’s see how that works out.

This is the real story of American loss. Loss of influence. 20 years ago this support would have been a given regardless of surrounding circumstances. The UN bodies (such as the WHO and amnesty International) are all in America’s pocket but only because those organizations can operate without approval from the UN General assembly or the security council. The non white world (that’s most of the global population for those Americans who think they are the world) is simply not playing America’s ‘hate everyone we tell you to’ game anymore. Europe stands alone with only America as a partner and… Read more »
