141 Nations Back UN Motion Demanding Russian Withdrawal From Ukraine

The UN General Assembly has passed a resolution calling on Russia to end hostilities in Ukraine and withdraw all of its military forces from the war ravaged country.

The resolution was introduced at an emergency special session on the eve of the first anniversary of the war.

141 UN Member States voted in favor of the resolution and seven countries, including Russia, Belarus, North Korea and Syria, voted against it. Among the 32 abstentions were China, India and Pakistan.

The Assembly, through the resolution, urged Member States to cooperate in the spirit of solidarity to address the global impacts of the war on food security, energy, finance, the environment and nuclear security and safety.

The Assembly also emphasized the need to ensure accountability for the most serious crimes under international law committed in Ukraine through independent national or international investigations and prosecutions

The world body on Thursday rejected an amendment proposed by Belarus that calls on Member States to refrain from sending weapons to the zone of conflict.

Crude Oil Closes Notably Higher After Recovering From Early Weakness

After coming under pressure early in the session, the price of crude oil showed a significant turnaround over the course of the trading day on Friday.

Crude for April delivery jumped $0.93 or 1.2 percent to $76.32 after falling as low as $74.09 a barrel in early trading.

With the notable increase on the day, the price of crude oil extended the surge seen in the previous session, further offsetting recent weakness.

Oil prices moved sharply lower in early trading amid concerns about the outlook for interest rates following the release of hotter-than-expected U.S. inflation data.

The Commerce Department said annual growth by core consumer prices, which exclude food and energy prices, accelerated to 4.7 percent in January from an upwardly revised 4.6 percent in December.

Economists had expected the annual rate of growth by core consumer prices to slow to 4.3 percent from the 4.4 percent originally reported for the previous month.

Paul Ashworth, Chief North America Economist at Capital Economics, called the data “another sign that the Fed might have to leave its policy rate higher for longer.”

However, selling pressure waned over the course of the session, with the subsequent turnaround partly attributed to news of a bigger-than-expected reduction in Russian oil production.
