UN General Assembly Passes Resolution To Commemorate WW II Victims

The UN General Assembly on November 5 agreed to Russian-drafted resolution for commemorating 70 to 85 million victims of World War II on December 1. It was passed with 54-40 in a 193-member assembly. However, the U.S, Germany and many European and Western nations have raised objections to a controversial paragraph of the draft. The resolution aims to promote "international cooperation", "human rights" and "democratic values" while keeping war-threats at bay.
