The Security Council voted on a draft resolution condemning the referendums to annex Ukrainian regions to Russia

The UN Security Council will vote today on a draft resolution condemning the "referendums" to annex several Ukrainian regions to Russia, according to what the French presidency of the council announced yesterday evening, a text that it has no chance of adopting due to the Russian veto.

The French presidency of the Council said that the meeting will be held on Friday at 15.00 (1900 GMT) before another discussion is planned regarding the leaks discovered from the Nord Stream gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea.

The draft resolution prepared by the United States and Albania has no chance of passing due to Russia's veto, but it can then be submitted to the UN General Assembly.

The draft text condemns the "organization by the Russian Federation of so-called illegal referendums" in the Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson and Zaporizhia regions, and considers that they cannot have "legitimacy" or be "used as a basis for changing the status of these regions", "including any alleged annexation." by Russia.

The draft calls on all countries and other organizations "not to recognize the alleged annexation" of the four regions by Russia.
