“The Assembly resolution makes explicit reference to the primacy of the UN Charter’s call for the preservation of the unity and territorial integrity of all UN Member States, and also recalls the 1994 Memorandum on Security Assurances in Connection with Ukraine’s Accession to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, the 1997 Treaty on Friendship, Cooperation and Partnership between Ukraine and Russian, and other bilateral agreements between Ukraine and Russia,” the UN Press Centre said.

The members of the General Assembly reaffirmed their commitment to the sovereignty, political independence, unity and territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders.
