The UN states that supported the document recognize that “the Russian Federation must be held accountable for any violations of international law in Ukraine or against Ukraine, including its aggression against the violation of the Charter of the United Nations, as well as any violations of international humanitarian law and international human rights law and that it must bear the legal consequences of all its internationally wrongful acts, including redress, including any harm caused by such acts.”
They also recognize the need to create, in cooperation with Ukraine, “an international mechanism for compensation for damage, loss or damage that is a consequence of the internationally illegal actions of the Russian Federation in Ukraine or against Ukraine.”
The resolution recommends the creation by UN members, in cooperation with Ukraine, of an "international register of losses to record evidence inflicted on all interested individuals and legal entities, as well as on the state of Ukraine as a result of Russia's international illegal actions in Ukraine."
Recall, on November 14, the UN General Assembly met for a special session, where it considered a draft resolution on the creation of a mechanism for compensating Ukraine for the damage caused by the full-scale war unleashed by Russia.
The Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the Organization, Serhiy Kyslitsa, who presented the document, stressed that voting for the resolution does not mean the choice of any of the parties to the conflict, because it is about supporting the UN Charter, its goals and principles, and international law in general.
