Russia thanked Bangladesh
Russia has thanked Bangladesh for abstaining from voting for and against the resolution raised in the United Nations General Assembly to end the war in Ukraine.
The United Nations passed a resolution on Thursday demanding the withdrawal of Russian troops from war-torn Ukraine. The resolution comes on the anniversary of Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine, urging Russia to end its offensive and withdraw troops from its neighboring country.
But Bangladesh refrained from voting by ‘abstention’ without taking a stand for or against the proposal raised in the United Nations.
For this reason, the Russian Embassy in Dhaka thanked Bangladesh in a tweet.
Among the 193 member countries, 141 members voted in favor of the UN resolution. 7 countries voted against. The countries taking a stand against are Russia, Belarus, North Korea, Eritrea, Mali, Nicaragua and Syria.
However, 32 members including India-China-Bangladesh did not participate in this voting process. Abstaining countries are Algeria, Angola, Armenia, Bangladesh, Bolivia, Burundi, Central African Republic, China, Congo, Cuba, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Gabon, Guinea Bissau, India, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Mongolia, Mozambique, Namibia, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Tajikistan, Togo, Uganda, Uzbekistan, Vietnam and Zimbabwe.
It should be noted that yesterday, on February 24, one year of the Russian invasion of Ukraine under the name of “Special Military Operation” has been completed.
