Czech Republic became a part United Nations Human Rights Council. The corresponding decision was made by the General Assembly of the organization.
It is known that the Czech Republic has taken the place of Russia in the UNHRC. 157 representatives of the General Assembly voted for the only candidate. Presumably, Prague will be a member of the Council of the organization until December 31 next year.
Former official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova announced that Moscow would not take part in the special session of the UNHRC on conflict in Ukraine. The diplomat called this event “another biased show.”
