New Delhi, 4th March 2022: For the fourth time, India has turned away from speaking against Russia at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC). India also did not participate in the voting on a proposal to investigate Russia’s military action against Ukraine.



However, the UNHRC has decided to establish an independent international commission of inquiry into Russia’s military actions against Ukraine.



The 47-member UN council voted on a draft resolution on the human rights situation in Ukraine. The motion was passed. 32 voted in favor of the resolution and two votes (Russia and Eritrea) against it, while 13 countries, including India, China, Pakistan, Sudan, and Venezuela, did not take part in the vote.



Countries that voted in favor of the resolution include France, Germany, Japan, Nepal, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and the United States.


“As a result of Russia’s military action against Ukraine, the Human Rights Council has decided to immediately set up an independent International Commission of Inquiry,” the council tweeted.


India has skipped voting on two resolutions on Ukraine in the Security Council of 15 countries and one in the 193-member General Assembly during the past week.
