"The General Assembly adopted a resolution that calls out Russia's assault on Ukraine for creating a dire humanitarian situation, pushes for a humanitarian corridor, and demands that fighting stops. In favour: 140 Against: 5 Abstained: 38," the UN News tweeted.

The resolution deplores the "humanitarian consequences" of Russia's actions.

In another tweet, the UN News says, “The General Assembly decided not to vote on a draft resolution on the humanitarian situation in #Ukraine proposed by South Africa.”

Bangladesh includes 50 countries that voted in favour the draft resolution while 66 countries voted against it and 35 abstained.
