UN source: US and allies urge countries to support anti-referendum resolution

UN, 5 Oct – The United States and its partners are actively persuading countries to support the Western draft resolution, which does not recognize the results of referendums in the LPR, DPR, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions, a source in one of the delegations said.
Earlier, the United States and Albania put to a vote in the UN Security Council a resolution that did not recognize referendums and called on all countries, international organizations and specialized structures not to recognize changes in the status of “Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions of Ukraine.” Also in the text there was a call not to recognize the accession of four regions to the Russian Federation. In addition, Moscow was called upon to immediately withdraw its forces from Ukraine. Moscow vetoed this document. Now the West is seeking the adoption of a similar project in the UN General Assembly (where the veto does not work).
Meanwhile, according to another UN source, “Russia proposes to hold a secret ballot on the Western draft resolution, which will reduce the number of countries supporting it.”
The draft resolution expresses “commitment to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine”, Moscow is condemned for allegedly “organizing referendums” and “annexing” the DPR, LPR, Kherson region and Zaporozhye.
Now, on the initiative of Albania and Ukraine, on October 10, in connection with the past referenda, an emergency special session of the General Assembly will open. It is expected that in the course of it a decision will be made on the Western draft resolution.
