Breaking Thursday, the United Nations General Counsel voted in favor of suspending Russia from the Human Rights Council. 93 nations voted in favor of the suspension, 24 voted against and 58 abstained.

The vote comes after the publicizing of the alleged atrocities Russian troops have recently committed in Bucha, Ukraine. “Russia is not only committing human rights violations, it is shaking the underpinnings of international peace and security” said Ukraine’s U.N. ambassador Sergiy Kyslytsya.

Among the nations who voted against the suspension, in favor of Russia, were Belarus, China, North Korea, Iran and Syria. China’s ambassador to the UN Zhang Jun said, “dealing with the membership of the Human Rights Council in such a way will set new dangerous precedent” and “produce serious consequences.”

    So why wasn’t Ukraine suspended for their atrocities that they perpetrated in the Donbass region over the past 8 years?
    Don’t get me wrong. BOTH the UKRAINIAN GOVERNMENT AND THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT are run by CRIMINALS. There is no good vs. evil here. The governments are BOTH EVIL. And it’s the COMMON FOLK who have to suffer these effects of these criminals.

    China hides the bodies, so they get to stay on the council.

Putin has said in recent years that Finland is considered friendly so long as they do not join NATO. Finland’s President Sauli Niinistö confirmed Sunday he has applied for NATO membership.

MetroUK tweeted chilling video and reported the following:

Russia has started moving nuclear-capable missiles towards its border with Finland hours after Moscow vowed not to tolerate Helsinki’s plans to join Nato.

The Kremlin issued a chilling warning that plans for both Finland and Sweden to sign up to the Atlantic alliance were a ‘grave mistake with far reaching consequences’.

Russian deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, said: ‘They should have no illusions that we will simply put up with it,’ and insisted ‘the general level of military tension will rise’.

The video was reportedly taken on a road leading to Vyborg, around 24 miles from the Finnish border, showing the deployment of mobile Iskander missiles.

“Seven launchers are thought to be en route according to commentary on a dash cam video broadcast by Russian media.”

A person on the video can be heard saying: ‘As soon as the president of Finland said they were joining Nato, a whole division of Iskanders, seven of them is moving towards Vyborg.

‘Looks like a new military unit is about to be formed in Vyborg or the region.’
