UN General Assembly to meet Oct. 10 concerning Russian annexation of Ukrainian territory
Resolution drafted by EU for UN to consider isolating Russia from international community if voted, according to diplomats

UNITED NATIONS (AA) - The UN General Assembly will convene an emergency session Oct. 10 concerning Russia's illegal annexation of Ukraine's territories, according to a spokesman.

The meeting request by Ukraine and Albania comes after Russia vetoed a UN Security Council resolution condemning the Moscow-backed "illegal" referendums to annex parts of eastern Ukraine.

The referendums and the annexation announcement by Russian President Vladimir Putin have been widely condemned by the international community.

The 193-member General Assembly will discuss the annexation of four Ukrainian regions -- Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson -- in violation of international law.

A resolution has also been drafted by the European Union for the UN body to consider isolating Russia from the international community if voted, according to diplomats.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has demanded that Russia be excluded from all international organizations.
