United Nations Security Council Resolution 2623 called for the eleventh emergency special session of the United Nations General Assembly on the subject of the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine.[1][2] Albania and the United States introduced the resolution before the United Nations Security Council, which adopted it on 27 February 2022.[3][4] Russia voted against while China, India and the United Arab Emirates abstained. As this was a procedural resolution, no permanent member could exercise their veto power.

Basis

United Nations General Assembly Resolution 377,[5] the "Uniting for Peace" resolution, adopted 3 November 1950, states that in any cases where the Security Council, because of a lack of unanimity among its five permanent members (P5), fails to act as required to maintain international peace and security, the General Assembly shall consider the matter immediately and may issue appropriate recommendations to UN members for collective measures, including the use of armed force when necessary, in order to maintain or restore international peace and security.

Resolution 2623 was the 13th time the Uniting for Peace resolution has been invoked to call an emergency session of the General Assembly, including the 8th such invocation by the Security Council.

Result

The eleventh emergency special session of the UNGA convened several times and passed the following resolutions:

  • Resolution ES-11/1 "Aggression against Ukraine", March 2, 2022, 141–5–35 (for–against–abstained)
  • Resolution ES-11/2 "Humanitarian consequences of the aggression against Ukraine", March 24, 2022, 140–5–38
  • Resolution ES-11/3 "Suspension of the rights of membership of the Russian Federation in the Human Rights Council", April 7, 2022, 93–24–58

Voting took place both in the General Council and in the Security Council.
