Russia’s actions in Ukraine are far from the criteria set by the Human Rights Council. Great Britain in the UN General Assembly.

Mr. President,

In establishing the Human Rights Council, this General Assembly unanimously agreed that “the members elected to the Council must adhere to the highest standards of human rights promotion and protection.” Russia’s actions in Ukraine are far from that standard.

We have all now seen the horrific images of Bucha և Irpin in the places where Russian forces were deliberately killed. As President Zelensky told the Security Council on Tuesday, it was difficult to find a war crime that Russia did not commit in Bucha.

Reports of executions, rapes, and mass graves leave no doubt that Russia has committed gross, systematic human rights abuses, including the suspension of the Human Rights Council. I strongly welcome the decision of the General Assembly to send a clear message that Russia has no place in the Human Rights Council.

Today’s vote is a message to Putin that those who stand by him or speak on his behalf must stop killing innocent civilians and end this war now.

Mr. President,

We take note of the fact that after their suspension, Russia announced its withdrawal from the Human Rights Council. We understand that this will offer a by-election, we welcome the opportunity it gives to a member state in the region that will really promote, protect and protect human rights, to take that place.

Mr. President,

Today’s vote is a victory for human rights, defending the credibility of the Human Rights Council սկզբունք Principles of the UN Charter.

Thank you.
