Russia suspended from UNHRC: Reasons

  • President Vladimir Putin had said the main objectives of what he called the “special military operation” were the “demilitarisation and denazification” of Ukraine. However, ground report revealed much more.

Situation for Ukraine

  • Ukraine had shown fierce resistance, especially in the north, which has changed the course of the conflict.
  • With military and financial aid from the West, Ukraine pushed Russia back in the north, but lost territories in the east and the south.
  • Moreover, given the power imbalance, it is unlikely that Ukraine can regain the lost territories.

 

Situation for Russia

  • Russia now seems to be bogged down in the battlefield, with international criticism mounting on its war conduct.
  • After the Istanbul talks, Russians announced their pull back from the north.
  • The war has damaged its economy and its reputation as a great power, while causing unspeakable losses and destruction in Ukraine.

  • The Ukranian President is also ready for a consultation period of 15 years for Crimea, which Russia annexed in 2014, and discuss the status of the self-declared Donetsk and Luhansk republics in a summit with the Russian counterpart.

 

Russia Suspended from UN Human Rights Council: Way forward

  • The investigation into the civilian killings should go on in parallel and not derail the diplomatic process.
  • The most important message from the UN body to Moscow is that it should cease the fire and take the path of diplomacy immediately.
