The resolution will not yet include tougher sanctions, such as removing Russia from the WHO executive committee and temporarily freezing its voting rights, according to three diplomatic and political sources. However, perhaps the last question will be considered from 22 to 28 May.
This move is considered political. It should contribute to the West’s efforts to isolate Moscow, but won’t have any of the major implications for Russian health or global health policy that diplomats say they have tried hard to avoid.
The text of the document refers to the public health emergency in Ukraine. It denounces Russia’s military actions that have resulted in mass casualties, disruption of medical services, increased risk of death from chronic diseases, infectious diseases, and radiological and chemical risks.
The resolution states that since February 24, there have been 191 attacks on Ukraine’s healthcare infrastructure, resulting in 75 deaths. These losses are called “completely unacceptable”.
