UN Calls for Russia to Pay Ukraine War Reparations

From a story on axios.com by Ivana Saric headlined “UN General Assembly calls for Russia to pay Ukraine war reparations”:

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.

Why it matters: The vote on the non-binding resolution is largely symbolic, but the support for the text is yet another indication of Russia’s isolation on the world stage following its invasion of Ukraine.

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