  • A Security Council meeting on Thursday (22 September) is expected to reflect on the new developments in the Ukraine war and the topic of discussion will be how to respond to Russia’s threats and the campaign to call up 300,000 reservists.
  • Asked whether he expects any significant breakthroughs, de Rivière said he hopes to make progress “on all aspects of this crisis”, but admitted it would be unlikely any time soon.
  • In March, China and India, the latter one of 10 non-permanent members, were the only two countries to abstain from voting on a Security Council resolution that called for an immediate end to Russia’s war in Ukraine.
