UN resolution on Ukraine: Names of countries that voted in favor, against or abstained from voting

New York: The UN General Assembly on Wednesday overwhelmingly adopted a resolution that “demands” Russia “immediately” withdraw from Ukraine.

Japan and New Zealand led condemnation from Asia, but the continent’s giants – China, India and Pakistan – all abstained. During the debate Beijing had stressed the world had “nothing to gain” from a new Cold War.

China was among the 35 countries which abstained, while just five — Eritrea, North Korea, Syria, Belarus and of course Russia — voted against it.

Below is the list that shows which country voted in favor or against the resolution or abstained from voting.
