Kenya is among the countries that voted for the United Nations General Assembly to adopt a resolution calling for Russia to be held accountable for breaching international law by invading Ukraine.
The Monday resolution calls for Russia to pay reparations for the damage and loss of life during the conflict. This is the first time Kenya was taking a side in the Russia-Ukraine war after the country’s earlier decision to be among the non-allied African states since the war broke early this year.
94 of the assembly’s 193 members voted in favor of the resolution, 14 voted against and 73 countries abstained.
The resolution said Russia, which invaded its neighbor Ukraine in February, “must bear the legal consequences of all of its internationally wrongful acts, including making reparation for the injury, including any damage, caused by such acts”.
